[D8952AAW], Letter from Osgood S Wiley to Alfred Ord Tate, February 13th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"Your favor rec'd. I called on Mr. Dredge & we talked the matter over - I did not want him to know the whole facts of the case he did not fully understand me regarding the money from Col. Gouraud. I went to Dredge & asked him to give me my weekly pound as he did the £6 & he said he would only pay me monthly - as I had bought some clothes I wanted to pay for them then - I went down to Hamilton & in some way Gouraud got a hold of it & wrote as he did. He don't like Dredge naturally - I have made a big mistake while I was idle awaiting my parent papers I got into a stock speculation & lost all the money I had overdrawn besides I did spend some extravagantly all I ask is for Mr. Edison to give me a chance to pay it all up. I will do what I can to clear it up if he will give me another chance - it has worried me sick & I've no one to blame but myself. My plant is all up & will be ready to work in a few days - I would like to have some definite ideas relative to what is to be done. I can get all capital necessary to float a company here - I've told Mr. Dredge about it & the people who wanted to go into it - relative to Mrs. Wiley's a/c 0 I must leave that to you & do just as you think best - it is very expensive living her & £4 to cover living & c is rather small - However I am not in a position to dictate only give me another chance & I will assure you it will be all right - My hand is better & only for a slight cold I am all right."
