[D8814ADY], Letter from Lewis Miller to Thomas Alva Edison, September 12th, 1888

Editor's Notes

Kitt wished me to write to you asking you to let him have a place in the Phonograph Works; he has studied electrical engineering somewhat and desires very much to get into that line of work. He is quite a young man but the family have all gone into electrical and telegraph work. He is a cousin of Charlie Bruch whom you know, who is now at work for Gilliland. His brother is in New York somewhere and is doing very well indeed, at least so everybody says; I have known the family all my life. They are all of good stock and I think are attentive and industrious. I did not know what among the additional men you will need there you might want some persons who had studied electrical work to start in the work. I think he is not particular where he starts or how and would start in the work shop anywhere and run his chances of working up. I will consider it a personal favor if you can accommodate him. Of course I know you must have thousands of applications but I have been interested in this family for many years and always like to help them. TAE marg: "OK. E"
