[D8805ACP], Letter from Alexander Muirhead to Thomas Alva Edison, April 28th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"A very great friend of mine Stone Bloomfield is now in the States on his way home from a trip to Australia. I have suggested to him that he should call and see your grand laboratory and see you some days ago by the Baldwin [unclear] agency. The cells have been one month under way observation and will quite correct when the were sent off. I hope they will reach you safely. Cannot I do anything to assist you in any way? I have never succeeded in getting in with the people who surround you. I don't know why not. Electric-Light installation in New York. If you can see him for a moment + give him an introduction to your Secretary in New York I shall be very glad. Tell Kennelly I sent the Standard cells off. Am alone now in [unclear] manufacturing approaches for the duplex working of cables chiefly-but am open to take up any sort of electrical work. Kennelley will tell you of me. Kind regard." Yours very truly, Alex Muirhead [Marginalia: "All right well have your friend [unclear] around."]
