Title

[D8850AAC], Letter from George Edward Gouraud to Thomas Alva Edison, January 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[typed] "I have your letter of 23d, enclosing copy of Nottage's letter to you. I immediately cabled you to hurry copies of agreements and correspondence and intimating that the delay in their receipt was dangerous. ### Cannot something be done to avoid in our coming business the delays which have generally characterised our correspondence in the past from your side? The delay I submit in this matter is unreasonable. I wrote weeks and weeks ago for these copies, but no reply has been received. Every body promised to do it for me, and perhaps that is the trouble, "too many cooks," &c. Cannot our friend Mr. Tate see that these matters are expedited? He looks like a man who does things thoroughly. Here am I with elaborate preparations, and don't know the position of a single one of the countries." [autograph PS by Gouraud---difficult to read]
