Abstract

We are in receipt of your letter of taxation of the Edison Phonograph Co. We kept no copy of the affidavit which we filed last year with the State Board of Assessors [---]. A copy could be obtained from the Secretary of the Board at Trenton. The affidavit which you made at the time of the adjustment with the Board would not avail you now because the circumstances of the case are different. As you recollect your Co. has since the last State tax abandoned the intention of manufacturing in this state and has leased the right to do so to other companies. If such a state of affairs exists at present the affidavit before presented will be of no use. Some time last summer Mr. John Tomlinson requested us on behalf of the Edison Phonograph Co to examine the title to certain property at Bloomfield held in your name. He furnished us the deeds and we had partially completed the search when we understoof that Mr. Tomlinson had some of his connections with Mr. Edison and since then we have rec'd no further instructions. We would like to close the matter up and therefore ask that you instruct us whether to finish the search or not.
