[D8850AEO], Letter from George Edward Gouraud to Alfred Ord Tate, December 31st, 1888

Editor's Notes

"In our new house I should like to confine the wall decoration exclusively to Edisonian photographs, viz:-everything you have pertaining to Edison and his inventions. I understand you have in your photographic department a great variety of negatives and if you will so much oblige me, with of course Mr. Edison's approval, I should greatly like to have a complete set of these as soon as possible. I should like views of central stations, plants, etc. which would be particularly interesting having regard to the enormous stimulus [unclear insertion] which is now appearing on the English horizon. I shall be happy to send you some good photographs in exchange, for hanging in the library as Mr. Bachelor requested me to do, and some of which you will shortly receive, together with a fine life-size bust of Mr. Edison which has been in hand for some months and will soon be ready. It might be well to give the chief photographer standing orders to send me photographs of everything fresh. They can be sent on rollers and mounted here." Faithfully yours, G.E. Gouraud [Marginalia: "Ans. 15/1/89"]
