[D8907ACR], Letter from Edwin Ruthven Weeks to William Preston Hix, November 11th, 1889

Abstract

[from Kansas City] [Enclosure] I have written to Mr. Edison suggesting that the promised phonograph discussion be upon “The Five Wire System” of you which remember he gave us a brief account on the occasion of our last visit. You will readily see the value of a discussion upon this topic to the Edison interests in the west, distances being a more important factor in central station distribution in western cities where business is widely scattered. ## I intend to publish a series of biographical sketches of prominent electrical men in some of the leading wester dailies and hope that you will be able to furnish me some unpublished material in regard to Mr. Edison. ## Please remind Tate of the photograph with signature promised me by Mr. Edison and also kindly bear in mind the two dolls for Christmas. ## In compliance with your request I suggested to Mr. Grimes that he write you regarding the stock placed by him. I suppose you have heard from him are this.
