[D8849ABO], Letter from Edwin M Fox to Thomas Alva Edison, September 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I am just in receipt of the enclosed telegram from Mr. Connery. ### Immediately after my interview with you last Saturday I telegraphed him to go ahead and secure concession in your name. I presume the fact is that he had secured proper assurances of Governmental privileges from the Mexican authorities but I deem it unwise for him to leave the ground until the actual grants or concessions have been officially granted. With that idea in view I have tonight telegraphed him as follows:-- "Unwise to leave till actual concession granted. Your absence affording infringers opportunity. Stay there." ### It is best to be on the safe side for doubtless the Tainter Bell people have their eyes on Mexico and therefore I think he should certainly remain on the ground until he has the Governmental parchment giving and granting beyond doubt the concession he seeks. ### I will advise you as soon as I hear again from him." Truly yours, Edwin M. Fox
