[D8905ACW], Letter from James A Clancy to Thomas Alva Edison, April 21st, 1889

Editor's Notes

Your clerk's letter containing check for ten dollars with interest at hand. Am very much surprised that you had forgotten about it. I don't think I should in that time, as when I gave it to you all I had in the world was $15.00 and I lent you ten of that. You made the remark at the time that you would never forget me. I had soposed I had one friend who would if I needed it help me in time of distress and so asked you [Hansom?] I wished you no hard luck and hope you may never be troubled with my complaint. I have acceotd a situation of small pay and am going to work on the first of the month and am in hopes to get things fixed up in time, and compeled to be carried to and from work and I can not walk. Hope you will never be in that fix. If you ever come to Michigan would be glad to see you Yours Respectfully Jas Clancy 50.9-3rd ave Det Michigan
