[D8805AFL], Letter from New York Herald, James Gordon Bennett to Thomas Alva Edison, August 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[NOTE TAE'S GEOLOGIC TIME SCALE] "Enclosed please find a letter pertaining to the supply of electricity. Would you be good enough to write a short reply to this for the Herald, and oblige," [TAE arginalia: "Tate write something like this. Let me see it: This gentleman asks where all the electric power comes from that runs our modern electric lights. The Herald can easily ascertain this by sending a reporter down stairs in their Electric light department to interview the Coal pile-The sun shining several thousand years ago on rank vegetation stored up the energy which lights the N.York Herald. The Reading RR owns most as the Electric [unclear]." Edison]
