[D8742AAK], Letter from Samuel Flood Page to Thomas Alva Edison, December 19th, 1887

Editor's Notes

"I beg to acknowledge and thank you for your letter of 7th instant. I am very much obliged for the conclusive answer that you have made with reference to my belief that some of your newest form of lamps were being sent to England. I felt sure that in addressing you direct your would give me exact information, and so certain was I that you would do this that I have not mentioned the fact of me letter to you to my Board or treated it in any sense in an official way. I thik it however only right to say that I did not write to you without mature consideration, and after I had satisfied myself that although I was not able to obtain any of your new lamps some of them had arrived in England. All that I can say is that some person in London had made promises which they were unable to fulfil as certain of your new lamps had been promised to a gentleman in London who was himself my informant. ## I am glad you are doing so much business with the new lamp in America and I am sure that you will also be glad to hear that our business is increasing in London and that there is every prospect of our turning this Company into a financial success. We have been a long time about it, but it is difficult to exaggerate the state of confusion and mess in which the financial affairs of the Company were when the amalgamation was effected."
