[D8912AAT], Letter from Lotos Club to Thomas Alva Edison, October 15th, 1889

Abstract

Somerville handed me your letter 9th instant relative to a dinner with the Lotos Club. # We should all be very sorry to impair your digestion in any way and fully appreciate the terrors of the dining campaign through which you passed during your recent visit to France. But we greatly desire the honor and pleasure of your presence at our table and in view of the respite of a month that you suggest for your stomach I beg to ask if the twenty-third of November would be a suitable date for the proposed festivity. It is a tradition of the Club that its dinners are always given on Saturdays and the one I have named will give you the full month you suggest for stomachic recuperation. # Awaiting your response, and trusting that the date will be satisfactory.
