[D8807ABH], Letter from Fowler and Wells Co, Nelson Sizer to Edison Manufacturing Co, June 20th, 1888

Abstract

I am preparing a pamphlet for publication which will constitute a No. of "The Human Nature Society" published quarterly by Fowler and Wells Co on the subject of "Mechanism, Invention and Inventors" and propose using some portraits of inventors like TAE's owing to number [--] 1878 we published in the [--------] Journal TAE's portrait and a considerable biography. That is ten years old and I fear the facts will be regarded as behind the time. # I write to inquire (1) when TAE can be addressed. (2) when I can find a late sketch of his achievements in invention, the approximate number of his inventions, from which I may be able to make a condensed statement which will do no discredit to TAE (or to you). As we wish to go to press soon, an early reply by TAE or anyone else who can do it will be a favor.
