[LB025023B], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Charles Edward Chinnock, July 7th, 1887

Abstract

Mr. Edison has noted your letter of the 2nd instant in reference to a circular which you desire to send to your representatives throughout the United States; he says that he thinks you had better consult Mr. Johnson in regard to the wording of such a circular, and his own opinion is that t should be thoroughly impersonal in its remarks. He means by this that it should state that Mr. Edison has been employed for some time in improving lamps, and in consequence of such improvement certain results have been attained, but that the Manufacturing Co. should simply say that owing to improvements which have been made in connection with lamps they are in a position to offer their customers a superior article, particulars in regard to which you will of course embody in this circular. Mr. Edison's idea is not to bring him personally before your Agents when explaining these recent developments to them.
