[D8845AHL], Letter from Osgood S Wiley to Thomas Alva Edison, December 30th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[TAE margiinalia: "Say we didn't believe it. But in some letters ask him explain getting excess money from Gouraud etc."] [from London] "I have just rec'd a letter from my father stating some one has informed you I was seen on the street 'roaring drunk' while I do not profess to be a teetoller I deny most emphattacilly the charges + refer you to Mr. Dredge if I have not attended to my work + done nohing of the kind-I would be obliged if you would kindly give man an idea of your informant + if it is authentic I am very much disturbed + worried by such statements especially as they are absolutely false-I can imagine the source of their origin simply because I would not sell out certain parties-I am all ready to go to work tomorrow + erect the machinery but am thoroughly disheartened by such outrageous lies. I would request you writing to Mr. Dredge + asking him or Mr. Hamilton who has seen me nearly every day + knows such is not the case, awaiting your reply." I am yours truly, O.S. Wiley
