[D8848ACZ], Letter from Parmly Olendorf and Fisk to Alfred Ord Tate, July 27th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Mr. John C. Tomlinson has placed in our hands for adjustment the matter of the State tx amounting to $1200 levied upon the capital stock of the Edison Phonograph Company for 1888. This amount has been levied and the tax is in the hands of the State Comptroller for collection. ### We have applied to the State Board of Assessors for a re-hearing in this matter and will be granted a hearing in Trenton on Tuesday next. We find that Mr. Tomlinson is out of town to remain some time, and are informed by Mr. Gilliland, one of the Directors of the company, that on application to you we can obtain the necessary information and assistance. ### It is necessary that either you or some other officer of the company make affidavit to the fact in regard to the busines, and we therefore ask that you call at our office in Jersey City on Monday at any hour after ten A.M. convenient to yourself, in order that the affidavit may be drawn and sword to. It will facilitate matters if you can bring a copy of the articles of incorporation of the company. ### If you can call on Monday please notify us in advance of the time of your arrival. It is necessary to have this affidavit if we are to succeed in our application to the State Board, and if the facts sworn to bear out the statements made by Mr. Tomlinson and Gilliland, we think the prospect excellent for not only relieveing the company from this years tax, but also for preventing the imposition of any future state tax under existing laws." Yorus respectfully, Parmly, Oldendorf & Fisk. [Marginalia: "File"]
