[D8807ABK], Letter from Edwin M Fox to Thomas Alva Edison, July 13th, 1888

Editor's Notes

The enclosed letter from Clarke of the Morning Journal explains itself. I realize that you must be an extremely busy man just now and I am therefore loath to tresspass on your time but as my article will be largely advertised and made quite a feature of it is important that it receive some of your attention. # Doubtless in your long experience in the field of invention and patents you have encountered numerous obstacles concerning which comments and suggestions authoritatively from you would receive marked consideration by both public and officials and might lead to results beneficial to yourself. If in your leisure time you jot down the principal ideas I could fill up the frame work and do the necessary elaborating. Before printing the article we would submit you the proof for your approval. In order that you may have ample time to give the matter attention I shall defer the publication until a week from next Sunday. # I hold myself in readiness to go to the lab whenever you desire.
