[D8848AAH], Letter from Uriah Hunt Painter to Edward Hibberd Johnson, February 12th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Your endorsement of my letter to you covering the proposition to collect $4800 for Mr. Edison from the Graphophone, together with his endorsement of it, I find on my return from Maine. ### The endorsement of Mr. Edison is signed 'Edison, G.' ### From the slovenly manner in which a proposition involving a large sum of money, is endorsed in pencil, leads me to suppose that the 'G' is Gilliland. ### Mr. Edison says he does not want to be 'coerced'!! Neither do I. ### Do you know anyone who has been, or is now endeavoring to 'coerce' him? ### Do you know anyone, or any interest that he, Edison, is endeavoring to 'coerce.' ### Are we muddying the water that he would drink from his eminence above us on the stream? ### About how long do you think it is my duty to follow him up with overtures of friendship and good will that he throws back in my face through the medium of a servant who writes with a lead pencil?" Yours truly, U.H. Painter
