[D8848AEV], Letter from Eugene Howard Lewis to Alfred Ord Tate, November 23rd, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have your favor of the 20th inst. Enclosing copy of a letter received from Mr. George Parsons Lathrop. It is pretty clearly proven that Mr. Lippincott spent Monday, June 11th. In Washington, returning to New York on the morning of Tuesday, June 12th, so that it is not possible that Mr. Lathrop can be right when he says he thought Mr. Lippincott was at Edison's Laboratory on June 11th. Will you kindly call his attention to the fact that Mr. Lippincott was in Washington on that day, and perhaps he will be able to identify the day as the 12th., when he was at Mr. Edisons laboratory. He seems to fix the day as the 11th, by stating that he left on the 13th, for home, and that it was two days after he had been at the laboratory. The question is may it not have been one day after he had been at the Laboratory that he left New York for home. ### Have you made any progress towards determining the date of the apple tree interview?" Yours truly, Eugene H. Lewis [Marginalia: "Ans. Nov. 22/88"]
