[D8905AFB], Letter from Werner von Siemens to Thomas Alva Edison, August 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[SELECTABLE? For post-Paris travels] [Berlin; addressed to Paris] With very great pleasure I hear from Mr. Villard, that you departed for Europe the 3rd of August and are probably now at Paris, and that you have the kind intention of accepting my invitation to visit me here at Berlin. ## I hope you will do me the honor of being my guest and of making your residences at my home in Charlottenburg during your stay here. ## Having previously arranged at joining my family at a German watering place and intending to return together with my family the 10th of september, it would be most agreeable some, if I could expect your kind visit on or after that date. If however this would not be convenient to you, I am ready to come back at an earlier day. You would do me therefore a great favor, if you would kindly write few lines to me stating the proposed day of your arrival in Berlin. ## [PS] As Mr. Villard write to me that you would like to make the acquantance of Professor du Bois-Raymond and of others of our scientific men, and as september is a bad time for meeting anybody at Berlin, and futher because there will be a convention of the society of natural science at Heidelberg from 17th to 23rd of Sept, I make you still another proposal which you may find perhaps convenient: Either you may go first to heidelberg where I should meet you about 17th of September, and from there we go afterwards to Berlin, or you may come at first here about the same proposed above, and we visit together Heidelberg during said convention.
