Abstract

"I have made several attempts to see you lately but have been prevented by reason of press of business, which has kept me very late in this City, thus causing me to arrive at Orange too late to call upon you. I am now in negotiation with certain capitalists in Philadelphia and am encouraged to believe that our Edison Illuminating Company of the Oranges, New Jersey, will yet be a success. I have already reported progress to Mr. Hastings at which he has express his pleasure and satisfaction. As soon as possible I will also report to you personally. ### I have some friends who would like to visit your laboratory, examine the phonograph &cs &cs. What evening this week would it be convenient to you for us to call there?"
