[D8914ABC], Letter from J Blan to Thomas Alva Edison, July 30th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I address you in behalf of my son. When he last saw you (a few days ago) at your laboratory, you did not tell him definitly if a position would be secured for him on your return from Europe in October. It was my intention to send him to Heidelbert this fall to continue his studies, but Ithink that at your laboratory, he can gain a very fair practical knowledge of chemistry. If then his position is assured, he is willing to wait a few months, but otherwise, rathern than let him idle away his valuable time, I shall send him to Germany this coming September. . . . [TAE marg: "I will certainly give him a place on my return but I should advise you to send him to the Paris Exposition where all the industrial arts can be seen in operation it will broaden him."
