Abstract

Have you sent a check to H. Andrew Holly, No. 111 Broadway, New York, for $945.42? This gentleman is Mr. Edison's late Architect, and the amount mentioned is due him for services rendered up to the time of his having ceased to be connected with the work. ## In the office here there is $230. due for rent, whih ought to be paid. I am advancing from the Lamp Factory, from time to time, certain small amounts which seem to me to be hardly worth troubling you about, and I am charging them against Mr. Edison's account. If you wish it, I can pay this amount, $230. for rent, but I do not care to make a payment without first consulting you. ## When you were here on Sunday last, did you have a talk with Mr. Edison in regard to finances in connection with his Laboratory? It look to me as though he was going to require a good deal more money than was at first anticipated.
