Abstract

"You will remember that at the Altoona meeting a special Resn was passed inviting you to be present at the next meeting in February to be held at Chicago and I was delegated to bring you--I undertook to do it--now there has arisen a dozen reasons why you should attend that did not then exist but I am not going with them. I simply ask that you place yourself at my dispersal for 3 or 4 days. You know I can take care of you in a way that will prevent you from being annoyed and thus make the trip an agreeable one. As to its profit--you can't even guess the amt of good it will do. If you will authorize me to say that you will be there, I will show you a gathering of the Edison Claus[?] that will do your heart good. And do the business an immense deal of good in giving heart and life to those interested in it. The National Convention meets at Pgh and of course Westinghouse will make a big show before it. I want to make as good a record and with Edison Material only. ### Will you go with me?" Yorus E.H. Johnson
