[D8805AHH], Letter from Sherburne Blake Eaton to Thomas Alva Edison, October 10th, 1888

Abstract

"Ex-Gov. Chamberlain and I were classmates at Yale. Since then we were for a time law partners. He has kept up his Greek studies, but I have not. He even writes and talks both modern and ancient Greek. I put your question to him by letter, and here is his answer. What he means by my 'criticism on Motograph' is that I said it was a combination of a Latin word and a Greek work, and perhaps objectionable for that reason. ### Lewis has studied up the subjec more thoroughly, and will write you his conclusions by early mail. ### Hoping you will find these suggestions of some aid, and awaiting your further commands, I remain," Sincerely yours, S.B. Eaton [semantics/etymology]
