Abstract

How can I get some of the disinfectant bromine water you invented?###"We, with thousands of others are intensely interested in your career & successes & read greedily any items respecting you & your researches"###"We felt so sorry when you were reported ill of consumption sometime ago when you went to Florida, feeling there was no one in the world nor in our nation to just fill your place." [TAE Marg.: "Am not the inventor of the disinfectant=I believe it was invented by Dr. Edson of NY Board of Health--You can probably procure Bromine water from any 1st class Druggist--Yours Truly, Thos A Edison"]
