[D8952ABH], Letter from James Dredge to Thomas Alva Edison, March 23rd, 1889

Editor's Notes

I have your letter of the 12th enclosing me from the London Parcels Delivery Co asking for L2.5.0 payment of carriage. I fyou will look at the statement I sent you accompanying my draft for L87.4.0 on Decr. 2d last, you will see that the L2.5.0 was included in that statement, and I believe the receipted account was attached with others to my stement I remember that I refused to pay the account till I hade a proper voucner for it, & I feel sure that Mr. Wiley [?] me the bill received. I am writing to the Co on the subject and if they have not received the money, of course it must be paid out again. It is very regrettable.##I shall send you next week a statement of expenditures I have made up to date and I shall ask you to tell me plainly if you are satisfied. I must say I am not, the expenditures from first to last seem to have been so heavy thoo I have kept everything down to the lowest limits. But if you are satisfied I shall be contented. I am sorry Mr. O'Driscoll will be shortly leaving for Australia on account of the Newberry Vantin Co I shall instruct him to see you on his way. I shall be able to replace him with another man at a somewhat lower price,on whom I can thoroughly rely
