[D8705AAA], Letter from Romeike's Agency Ltd to Thomas Alva Edison, April 18th, 1887

Abstract

London-based newspaper clipping agency asks whether TAE would care to use them; includes promotional flyer; subscription form; and two sample clippings, both dealing with TAE's activities in Fort Myers, Fla. The first notes that TAE is now at Fort Myers in somewhat feeble health. The correspondent notes that "it is amazing to see . . . With what mysterious awe the Negroes regard the electrical wizard." The second clipping is a report from Fort Myers that TAE is at work on his sea telephone and has already developed it to the point that it can "transmit sound between two vessels from three to four miles distant." The partially filled out subscription form says TAE would like clippings re: himself and his inventions.
