[D8856ABP], Letter from Ansonia Brass and Copper Co, Alfred Abernethy Cowles to Thomas Alva Edison, February 1st, 1888

Editor's Notes

Mr. Insull writes me complaining of the great delay in shipping copper &c for your laboratory. I am happy to state now that almost everything you ordered has been shipped to you, and what few articles remain to be shipped will be sent in a few days. The delay doubtless seems great to you, but the difficulty of making such small quantities of so many different sizes of goods is more than you would think, and it takes us as long to fill such an order as it would to fill a very large order such as we ordinarily get. ### I impressed upon our people the importance of accomodating you in this reapest, and I think they did all they could. I regret very much that you have been put to any inconvenience by the delay, and I trust, under the circumstances, you will excuse it. I remain, Yours very truly, A. Harold [Marginalia: "Ans. Feb 2/88"]
