Abstract

"Your favor of Jan. 30th to hand. The arrangement outlined therein is agreeable to us, with this modification: ### We will send to you a check, each Wednesday, for three hundred and fifty dollars ($350), and we will expect from you monthly statement of all expenses incurred; and this statement to bear the initials of Mr. Marshall. We do not like to have accounts open so long as three months, and also feel, that as our account will be a large one, in which the "T.A. Edison Carbon account" may be mixed up with it, that it should receive the check of some one in our employment. We would also, like to know what arrangements you propose making for the account which we have now against Mr. Edison. We think that you have some offset in the shape of expenses, which you could laready render us and have the bill sent to us as promptly as possible, so that we can take the accoutn off our books, or reduce it to as small an amount as possible." Yours truly, the Edison Lamp Co per Francis R. Upton, treas. [Marginalia: "Ans Feb 2/88"]
