Abstract

New York, April 11, 1889####Thomas A. Edison, Esq., President####The Edison United Manufacturing Co.,####Llewellyn Park, Orange, New Jersey.####Dear Sir:--####Notwithstanding the fact that you are exceedingly busy, I consider the enclosed correspondence of sufficient importance to lay before you.####I am compelled to admit that in my opinion Messrs. Leonard & Izard have not exaggerated the state of affairs in the West.####I am in possession of proof, about which there can be no doubt, showing conclusively that the Westinghouse and Thompson-Houston Companies receive $9,00. for a 2500 light alternating dynamo, without lamps, sockets or converters. This is simply startling.####From my observations I feel quite positive that we are not receiving one-quarter of the business we should, although our sales amount to more than last year. Truly yous, CE Chinnock Vice President
