[LB007329], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to William Henry Preece, January 23rd, 1882

Abstract

It was with very great pleasure indeed that I read your lecture on Electric Lighting at the Paris Exposition, and more especially your remarks upon my system as exhibited at Paris##I must thank you most heartily for your very favorable endorsement of my system and congratulate you on expressing your views in so independent and forcible a manner.##Your lecture will be reprinted in Van Nostrands Magazine for February, copies of which I will send you when published. Arrangements have also been made for its early publication in conjunction with Count Du Moncels article from "La Lumiere Electrique" and several other articles, in book form as one of "Van Nostrands Science Series"##I can scarcely close this letter without referring to our past troubles, in which I am very glad to say I think we were both mistaken, and to repeat my gratification at having your approval and support in respect to this larger subject.
