Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


June 9th. 1892.
My dear Mr. Edison:
I am in receipt of your of June 7th. enclosing statement of the business of the A.B.Dick Company, for the year ending April 30th, 1892. Mr. Dick certainly seems to be an excellent business man and I should be in favor of giving him a chance at the Phonograph, provided we can make such arrangements with him as were outlined to some extent during our conversation of a few weeks ago. What we want in connection with the business is some organized attack, on the Western territory particularly, and for this we could probably get no better service than that of Mr. Dick. If we can only dispose of our friend Mr. Gottschalk and his injunction, without necessary delay, and Mr. Tate and Mr. Butler succeed in handling the Convention of Sub-Companies, to be held at Chicago on the 13th. inst, in the way that they propose, I think the close of this year should see our present stock of Phonographs largely completed.
I am very glad to hear Mr. Tate’s report as to your ideas on the subject of disposing of the large stock of Graphophones that we have on hand. We should net from that source considerably over $100,000. and I have no doubt you will be glad to have that amount of bonds redeemed, or the money otherwise expended in the line of reducing the debts from The N.A.P.Co. I return the Dick papers as requested.
Yours very truly,
Thomas A. Edison, Esq.
