[D8964AAZ1], Letter from Miss J T Spalding to Alfred Ord Tate, May 20th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[ans May 21/89] My dear Mr Tate. If you have not mailed list of stockholders to the address I left in Newport--Kindly send to me care John J. Spalding, Dedham, Mass. as I have decicded not to make the week stop I intended, in Newport. I have also written to have anything forwarded from there. I have a very old Aunt in Boston, for whose sake I cannot go far from home this Summer, & as I have no place engaged yet, & am not at all well, I think I will go right back, & get settled--& that willleave me free earlier, to see what I can do, in a very quiet way, about what we were speaking this morning. It will take thought, & great discretion on my part, for I do not wish to get mixed up in it--only as a lady may suggest a movement in the right direction, by the right people. Neither Mr Edison, nor you, have any idea how very miserable I have been made, by what you told me this morning--for another loss will be almost more than I can bear. I believe in Courage, however, & to try to meet things as [wisely?] as we can, that are such trials. Pardon my taking so much of your time, & I am, in haste, very truly yours, J. F. Spalding [P.S.] All Boston has been told "Mr Edison was manager."
