[LB009174], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Edward Hibberd Johnson, October 9th, 1881

Editor's Notes

Batchelor writes me that he has captured Conrad Cooke [(Edition]) & Dredge [(Beupuretae]) of Engineering & that they will render us some kind of justice at last. Now I think you should get hold of Cooke have a good square talk with him & tell him you want him to be connected with us in an official capacity. Give him clearly to understand that he will be treated very differently to the way in which Arnold White treated him. You should also get hold of the man who writes up Electrical subjects for Engineer & do the same with him. Arrange the matter with Fabbri & put the thing on a thoroughly business basis. These men may annoy us considerably so it is just as well to quiet them.##Fabbri sent me the enclosed circulars as to Exhibition at the Crystal Palace. The exhibit at Paris seems to have acted as a first class advertisement for the Light. I am quite willing that the SParis exhibit should be sent to the Crystal Palace for exhibition but in as much as it would act as a very big advertisement I think Fabbri should bear the expense Already the cost to me in the way of instruments has been very heavy so I do not think he should object to this. Of course under any circumstances he would have to pay for the Electric Light part of the exhibit. See Fabbri & cable me what he will do.##Is your cable address Phos or Phonos.
