[D8848ADW], Letter from Edward Hibberd Johnson to Thomas Alva Edison, September 17th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I am very sorry I missed you on Friday particularly as I learn from those who saw you that which not only explains a good deal fo the cross purposes at which we have been working but also opens the way to a common line of action for us all. There is now absolutely no reason why you should refuse to see Painter Reiff and the rest of us and confer fairly upon this whole subect and if I am rightly informed to do so, will be to put us all straight with each other once more. And put more money in your coffers than you expected which we shall all get that which will satisfy us believing that all this is the certain issue of a general conference I do not hesitate to ask you to come in tomorrow and meet the others at my office say about noon--or at any convenient hour--if you will do this and bring along both the Old Orginial Contract between yourself and the Old Company and your new contract with the Present Parent Company I think you will find that all matters can be adjusted to your satisfaction as well as your profit. ### At all events I want this conference for the purpose of clearing the atmosphere of the past. As soon as that is done I at least will make short work of the future."
