Title

[D8704ABI], Letter from Osgood S Wiley to Thomas Alva Edison, July 18th, 1887

Editor's Notes

Came out to Pittsburgh to work for Westinghouse, but have been sick six weeks and doctors recommend returning East; as you know my experience in electrical work, would you give me a position in your laboratory "no matter how small with a chance to rise according to my ability"; I prefer electrical experiments to book business; can't say the alternating system is a success, "tho it is old enough to be."
