[D8907ACG], Letter from H E Hicks to Thomas Alva Edison, October 28th, 1889

Abstract

I feel that I owe you an explanation in regard to Sunday's article in the Morning Journals. ## If you really did not wish your name to be signed, you must have been surprised to see it, after the positive request you made me. ## I did the best I could to honor that request. I telegraphed my matter in as a plain interview and informed the office that you did not wish your name signed. ## If they saw fit to sacrifice me on the altar of 'enterprise,' you will readily see that I could do nothing and that all I could do after its publication was to write you an explanation. ## This is the first time such a regrettable occurrence has occurred in my journalistic career, and I trust it may be the last. It is all the more painful to me as it should have annoyed one whom I shall always be happy to call the most couretous of men."
