[D8755ACN], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Thomas Alva Edison, 1887

Editor's Notes

"Edison do you understand this? Pinkham [?] was secretary of Bridgeport Forge Co. and now has a forge at Whitestone [unclear]. But I don't know Maxwell do you? [[xref Full text of "A History of the Old Town of Stratford and . . . http://bit.ly/zqP6c5 "The Bridgeport Forge Company was organized in January, 1883, with a capital of $150,000, and is located at the foot of Howard avenue. The officers are: President, Charles H. Pierce; Secretary and Treasurer, William F. Pinkham ; Superintendent, Benjamin Fletcher, Jr. They manufacture wrought iron and steel forgings of all kinds, and are particularly equipped for marine and engine work of the heaviest descriptions. Their steam hammers and machine tools are the most powerful in the eastern States. Their locality on an inlet of the Sound, aflFords facilities for -shipments of some of their goods by water, and a side track of the New York and New Haven railroad gives ready trans- portation by that method. ]] updated tc 2/
