[D8845AHD], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison, Thomas Maguire (Edison Employee) to Alfred Ord Tate, December 19th, 1888

Abstract

"Mr. Edison dictated the following:- ### Livor told me yesterday that he saw a newspaper man named Crawford, who has just returned from Europe. Crawford said to Livor: 'What the hell's the matter with Edison's agent over there? He's drunk all the time, and is bordering on a state of delirium-tremens, as I saw him at the First or Second Ave. Hotel in London-I forget which.' ### Evidently he refers to Wiley. I think you had better drop a private note to his brother, and ask him to inquire of Dredge, if the young man is keeping himself straight." [Marginalia: "Wrote W.H. Wiley Dec 19/88 Thos. Maguire"]
