[D8814ABA], Letter from Samuel Dimmick Mott to Thomas Alva Edison, February 11th, 1888

Abstract

I would like very much to get back into lab work. Have you anything in your new enterprise which would pay me sufficiently for the support of my little family and at the same time afford an opportunity to make and lay by something for the inevitable "rainy day?" I have continued constantly in the electrical field, on this side of the Atlantic and the other, enlarging my ideas, experience, and acquaintance since the pleasant days at Menlo which linger in memory like childhood hours. I am quite sure I could make myself useful to you and to myself at the same time most congenially employed.
