[D8905AEE], Letter from James Thomas Edwards to Thomas Alva Edison, June 28th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Dear Sir: If it were not for a card which I inclose I should make no further demands upon your valuable time. You twice at Chautaqua VOLUNTEERED the suggestion that you would be glad to send us on some apparatus and recently, through your secretary, wrote to the same purport, on the strength of which I made a trip to Orange, when you promised to forward the apparatus in a few days. I am now sorry that I troubled you about it, espeially as the matter is likely to place me in a false light, for in speaking to Dr. Harper about the improvements in my department I mentioned to him what you proposed to do, not expecting he would insert the fact in a circular; but thinking it a matter of some importane he made a note of it--I presume your time is so fully occupied that you cannot attend to the matter, but if you do conclude to do as please ship to me at Chautauqua, Chautauqua, N.Y., as college opens July 3rd. I remain Resptly Yours J. T. Edwards [TAE Marg: Hold till I return from Europe]
