Abstract

"We are in receipt of your favor, endorsing the contemplated Edison Construction Company. Our Mr. Stern was in New York, and had intended to call on you personally, in connection with this matter, but being pressed for time, is obliged to leave, and for that reason writes you in order to state that it is certainly a very great satisfaction to us to know that you endorse this movement and think it is a good one, but, at the same time, since it is an Edison Company, we certainly feel as though Mr. Edison ought to be identified with it in some way or other, no matter how small his holding in the thing really is. We have now practically enough stock subsribed to enable us to get to work immediately, but we would feel better satisfied to have you with us. Will you therefore not kindly have the enclosed blank filled for some few shares and thus enable us to get you with us. Hoping to be favored with your early reply, we remain," Truly yours, Stern & Silverman, D. [Marginalia: "Subscribed for 5 shares. Ans June 20/88"]
