[D8803AAG], Letter from Dick (A.B.) Co to Thomas Alva Edison, April 6th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"We are interested to know what success, if any, you have had in your experiments on a new process of 'coating' this fiberous paper and displacing such 'coating' in the form of Type-written stencils. We are still using our old process but confident a better one can be found by continued experimenting. ### The writer is of the opinion, that a composition impervious to ink, which could be thinly and uniformly spread over the thin fiberous Japanese paper we now use and which can be displaced by the aid of an acid ink to conform to the shape of Type-writer characters, can be found. ### A prepared sheet of paper of this description would be preferable to the paraffin stencil sheets now in use. We would like to be advised if you have succeeded in whole or in part in these experiments." TAE marginalia: "Tate give this to Cousins + tell him see me about it." E]
