Abstract

[Letterhead: The Edison Machine Works] "Yours of the 18th at hand with enclosure of C.H. Brown & Co.'s letter. I will get from Manning, Maxwell & Moore a list of what was sent with the Precision lathe, and mail it to you. I notice what you say about Fay's tools being exhortionately high in which I hardly agree with you. Messrs. J.A. Fay & Co's tools stand in the same relation to wood-working Tools that Wm. Bement & Sons do to Iron Tools. Fay & Co. do not pretend to compete with other Wood-working Tool builders any more than Bement & sons do with Iron Tool Builders. Of course, I can buy whatever make of Wood Tools you may select but my experience leads me to say that J.A. Fay & Co's Machinery is the cheapest in the end by long odds."
