Editor's Notes

Dear Sir Re Edison personal Tax. We are in receipt of your letter of the 10th inst. Which fully answers all our questions.##We enclose herewith an affadavit, in the form of an answer, which we desire should be sworn to and returned to us. We think it embodies the information contained in your letter of the 10th inst. We have ventured to embody one other statement, to wit: that you paid taxes on personal property in the town of Orange during the period before September 1885 and February 1886. If this is the fact, it is of value. If the statement that such personal taxes were paid at Orange is incorrect please return the paper to us for correction,##Re Edison Administrator Tax. We desire a little further information as to this: a0 The date of Mrs Edison's deathhand where she resided at the time of her death. B) By what court, if any, was Mr. Edison appointed administrator? Early attention to these matters will oblige Very truly yours, eaton & Lewis [name mentions: Mrs. Mary stilwell Edison S.B Eaton and Lewis Thos Edison Administrator and Personal Tax, NYC ]
