[D8914ABG], Letter from Phillips B Shaw to Alfred Ord Tate, December 4th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Enclosed herewith please find an application for position in the Edison Laboratory be Herbert B. Coho, of Lancaster, Pa. When I was last at Orange, during an interview with Mr. Edison I spoke of this young man, and he told me to have him file an application, and that if a vacancy occured where he could use a green man he would give it consideration.### I send the application direct to you believing that you will take the rouble to call Mr. Edison’s attention to the application, should you have occasion to use a new or green man. This young fellow is a son of one of the directors of the Lancaster Edison Co is at present engaged as clerk in the County Nat’l Bank, is bright, willing to work and particularly anxious to have some practical experience in the electric field, he will come to Orange at any time you might want to talk with him or examine him as to his qualifications for any position you might want to place him in. ### If you will give this matter personal attention you will confer a special favor upon.
