[D8833ABZ], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Alfred Ord Tate, August 28th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[Lamp Co suplliers and finances] "Regarding the endorsements of Mr. Edison, we send you with this a complete list of all the endorsements active to-day. ### Mr. Edison endorses 2 lines only, one of the Corning Glass Works, which is the result of the fact, that when we changed from a partnership to a Stock Company, the Corning Glass Works insisted that they should still have the personal matter that credit has given to us. We have not, as yet, been able to reduce the line sufficiently warrant us in asking them to free the notes of personal endorsement. ### As our method of payment gives us seven and a half months in buying our glass, which is the largest item we purchase, it is very desirable that we keep it up. ### The other line of paper is the line of discount at the German National Bank, as this is single name paper, it is made double name by having personal endorsements on it." Very truly yours, Francis R. Upton
