[D8914AAV], Letter from Charles Widmer to Thomas Alva Edison, June 29th, 1889

Editor's Notes

You will remember the first foreman of the tool room at the Phonograph Work. under Mr. Keller and when I left I think I was capable of running that job but I could not get along with Mr. Batechelor so I thought the best thing for me to do was to leave. Now I have not had any good luck since. I wish to ask you if you have some kind of a job for me where I can make myself useful in any place except the Works. I am a good tool maker also have experimented some can work on instruments. If you cannot do any thing for me I hope you would not refuse to give me a recommendation which would help me a great deal. As you know in every place you go the bosses want to see a good reference. Or if you could refer me to some PH. F. g. concern where you have some influence I would be very much obliged to you. Enclosed you will find envelope addressed and stamped. ([marg.: As you ([-]) named me the 10/1000 friend)]
