Abstract

New York, March 9, 1889####A.O. Tate, Esq., Private Secty.,####T.A. Edison, Esq., Llewellyn Park.####Orange, New Jersey####Dear Sir:--####I have carefully gone over the correspondence re the giving out of the underground conductors from Mr. Burke's house. We are in receipt of a communication from the Standard Underground Cable Company, stating that the trouble is caused by chemical actino and that they refuse to make good their bad work. You are well aware that we assumed the liabilities, as well as the assets of the Edison Wiring Company, as your letter implies, consequently I feel that we are compelled to make good the underground work, and with that end in iew, we accept your offer on behalf of Mr. Edison to substitute Edison tubes at a cost not to exceed One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.).####The installation being so near you, and they, of course, will insist upon calling on you to make any repairs, I believe the better way would be for you to assume all responsibility in connection with the change for a sum not to exceed the amount named above.####Trusting you will forward me an acceptance of this proposition with any further information that you consider necessary, I remain,####Truly yours,####C.E. Chinnock####Vice President.####[name mentions: C.E Chinnock, A.O. Tate, John Burke, Thos Edison, Standardn Underground Cable Company]
