[D8952ABB], Letter from Osgood S Wiley to Alfred Ord Tate, March 9th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"I cannot raise any money upon my fire alarm stuck for about six weeks as my friend is away and out West - Any plan you may suggest about my paying money is from my salary (provided Mr. Edison retains me) will suit me - As I said before its my own fault & if I lose my place I am sure I don’t know what will become of my & my family. Is there no way you can put it to Mr. Edison. I wil do anything I can or whatever you may decide upon - I put up the plant & left it in working order. I can give my brother the name of a capitalist who wants to go in on it & who is a friend of mine. Will [----] see you about it & he may think best to go over at once about the capital - could I not see Mr. Edison at his house for a few minutes Sunday or Monday night - I am very grateful to you for what you have done & if I can have a chance I am sure I will do well for Mr. Edison. Could I not take a phonograh territory & mark that - I know how to mark them or go in again on the ore business at the laboratory - Please advise what I can do."
