Abstract

My dear Edison I heartily congratulate you on your safe return to this country. Your wonderful reception by "peoples, princes, & potentates" puts the stamp of the world's approval upon you.##Your old enemies can no more belittle you now, nor can new ones, rob you.##The MANIPULATED HONOR conferred upon Bell & Gray at the last Paris Exposition, pale before the honors now voluntarily thrust upon you--##I also congratulate you upon your first victory over the telephone on Saturday. Wishing you great success. I am as always Yours faithfully Josiah Reiff [name mentions: Paris Universal Exposition, Alexander Graham Bell]
