[D8952AAV], Letter from William Halsted Wiley to Alfred Ord Tate, February 11th, 1889

Editor's Notes

This is the last effort I shall make to arrange an interview with Mr Edison. It is absurd that in three to four weeks there has been no time for meeting. I saw Mr Insull on Broadway & he informed me that he was the only one who had anything to do with this matter.##I propose to deal with Mr Edison as I have all along & with you as his representative.##Now if the separater is to have any success in England or France & if you expect to have the influence of Engineering to be thrown in favor of it, you will see the necessity of having some definite arrangements and some plan of operations. I have prepared the ground in France, & we must have some distinct plan to work to a success. If not why all the money and time spent are of no avail. I prefer to see Mr Edison in the P.M. & at the laboratory & will come out any day you fix. As to evenings if this can not be done I have Wednesday & Thursday. Dredge writes me for information & you must tell him either to go ahead or to withdraw
