[D8814AFB], Letter from John B Coe to Thomas Alva Edison, December 19th, 1888

Editor's Notes

While you were experimenting at Chas Williams Jr in this city some twelve years ago I done most of the work for you in that shop at that time you will perhaps remember me by my calling to your mind. # When you were leaving for New York to commence your World famed career I gave you some patent papers that I took out on a pie ornamenter &c. You kindly offered to try and dispose of the patent for me but I presume of course sir that you did not have time to give such a trap a thought. I only mention it so that you will perhaps remember me and I ask you dear sir if you can give me a position of any king I have not worked at the bench for a few years but think I am competent with a little practice to do most any kind of work if you can offer me any position it will be most gratefully received and am in need.
