[D8945ABF], Letter from Philip Sidney Dyer to Thomas Alva Edison, November 16th, 1889

Editor's Notes

The Edinburgh Exhibition people feel very badly, that they will not have you represented in some way in the Exhibit. I think you can make any kind of terms you like with Mr. S Lee Baxter the manager. Why not send over one of your"Mmulti-polar" Central Station Dynamos and light up a part of the Exhibition with this Machine you could send over afew things such as Meters, Underground System New Regulators &c. and make a creditable display, and at a very cheap cost; as the Exhibition people are anxious to have you in. You know you are one of the Vice Pres.-- In a letter to Mr Preece who also seems anxious to have you make a show he says The Exhibition people will find space and will bear all expenses.##You can make a might fine Exhibit without going to any trouble. Our man could take over the things, place the machine, run it and lout for everything. You have done a big thing for France, now is the chance to get your new Dynamow well on the English market. I think orders enough could be taken at the Exposition for the multi-polar machines to give them a splendid run on this side. The Edinburgh Expo will be largely attended by Russians, and Russia is one of the large markets of the future-- Yours very truly Philip S. Dyer
