Abstract

I beg to enclose you herewith a statement of Mr Edisons accounts against the European Co showing a balance due him at this date of $2780.27.##I have separated the expenses incurred on account of the Paris Exposition from those incurred in the general business of the European Company.##I would be glad if you would treat the accounts we originally rendered as withdrawn although I return them herewith in order to enable you to compare these with those now presented. In the old account you were debited with the cost of a Dynamo which although made for the Paris Exposition was never sent there. The total cost of this was $594.45 I have withdrawn this amount entirely fro the account. I have also withdrawn $350 money advanced to [--] Senbel. This wa are endeavoring to collect from him personally. I have also taken out of the account the sum of $1594.09 cost of a pump & engine sent to Mr Batchelor. This was put in the account in error in the first place. I have now rendered it to the Society Industrielle et Commerciale Edison. Other amounts to the sum of $250.86 have also been withdrawn.##The principal additions to the account as proposed of payments to Dr Moses on account of his expenses in Paris during the Exposition. I have repeatedly asked him to render a complete account but for some reason or other he has not done so.##If you require any personal explanation of these accounts I shall be happy to give it & if you think it necessary I will attend the Board meeting at which they are considered
