[LB014199], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Erastus Wiman, September 27th, 1882

Abstract

I duly received your favor of the 22nd. inst. with enclosure named. The system of railroad referred to by your Pittsburgh correspondent is nothing more than that of Siemens, at present being used in Europe. My railroad at Menlo Park will be ready to be tested in the course of a few weeks. I will advise you later as to the probable date of the test and it will afford me great pleasure to have you present at the time. We shall doubtless be able to arrange to put an electric locomotive on your proposed Staten Iseland railroad, but I think it would be too expensive to take advantage of the tide, such as you suggest.
