Abstract

"We are organizing a wiring Co for New York City & outside wiring work. Bergmann Batchelor & I each are in for 4000 $ -- 25% only of which will be called for sometime -- the Noll Bros -- Chinnock -- Greenfield & some others are in -- Capital will be 50,000 -- 13,000 of which will remain in the Treasury for the time It will be a very profitable business, so I have put you down for 4000$ -- We have gone on the principle of putting in only people that we think can do us some good -- except perhapsHannington who we have put in [-----] to give him an opportunity -- ## We will call it the Edison Wiring Co. ## Bergmann & I will keep the control of it (I mean of course in C[---]piu[----] with the stock of you Batch & our own ## [---] = when are we 60,000? Take up with Edison" Marginalia by Charles Henry Coster: "Will try to do so next week" Marginalia by TAE: "The Lord only knows why I am to get the sheckels (?)-- Laboratory is going to be an awful pull on me -- Has Coster returned"
