[D8964AAW], Letter from Albert Blake Dick to Thomas Alva Edison, May 10th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[ans may 21/89] My dear Mr Edison##I am just in receipt of your reply to my last cablegram and am now ready to proceed as arranged with you.@@In as much as you were quite confident, before I sailed, that you would be able to advise me definitely, before this, concerning the situation under the Jacque contract, I thought it advisable to wire you for latest information before actually opening negotiatons, as I have found that it would be to your advantage if I could be prepared to offer the Toy Phonographs for sale or make contracts for future deliveries after working the business up to a point where it is possible to accomplish such a result.##To investigate the possibilities in the Doll and the Toy trade is one thing and to take positive orders for Toy Phonographs, is quite another, and I will be glad to have early assurances from you that an opporutnity will be given me to determine te purchasing faith of the Doll dealers.##In the meantime I will endeavor to conduct the investigation in such a manner as to promote our best interests, and enable me to close contracts later on, if so instructed.##My business acquaintence here has helped me considerably in gathering the necessary data, and I do not expect to experience any difficulty in ascertaining all the information you will require. Yours Very Sincerely A. B. Dick
