[D8805AEJ], Letter from T Hasegawa to Thomas Alva Edison, July 11th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[from Schenectady] "You will be well acquainted with the matter of Mr. Iwadare, a friend of mine, who has recently entered a Japanese electric light Co., where he is going to make a negotiation with Thomas Houston Co. I am supposed by the works here to have the same intention as he. Moreover, the reason Mr. Kruesi dismissed me from the Works, looked as if I was responsible for Mr. Iwadare. ### As you know, I was first introduced to you by Mr. Fujioka, a chief engineer of Tokio Electric Light Co. where the Edison system is adopted. My coming to this country is to learn that system and to introduce it in my own country more extensively, and not entirely for the purpose like Mr. Iwadare's. I am, therefore, in whatever light, in the Edison side either in Japan or in this country. ### You will therefore oblige me very much, if you be kind enough to recommend me to one of your companies, as Lamp Factory or your Laboratory or others." PS: "Enclosed please find a testimonial, Mr. Kruesi gave me at my leaving and which you will be kind enough to return me.
