[D8907AAF], Letter from James Foster Coates, New York Mail and Express to Thomas Alva Edison, January 24th, 1889

Abstract

I am collecting for publication in a newspaper article the views of a few representative men and women who are foremost in leading public thought and opinion, on the question: "What great reform in our social, political, religious, or educational system is most needed, and will advance us as a people?" # I appeal to you, earnestly, for an answer, however brief. Your prominence in the public mind makes your views on any subject of importance, and no symposium would be complete without you. # I should be glad to have you write at length, but a word or a sentence do if you are too busy to give the subject much attention.
