[LB025092B], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Albert Blake Dick, October 13th, 1887

Abstract

For reasons mentioned in previous letter of same date, I have been unable to reply to yours of the 20th Sept. until to-night. I have talked to Mr. Edison in reference to your idea of establishing a Novelty Co., to be operated from N. Y. and Chicago, and to include the manufacture and sale of [???] of Mr. Edison's invention as he desires to place in your hands. It is Mr. Edison's intention to place you with a number of his inventions, but he would prefer that they should be merhcandised in a manner similar to your method of [labelling?] the Mimeograph, rather than that a Company should be formed, as you propose in your letter under reply. Mr. Edison has not been able to go very extensively into these novelties, owing to the very [contracted?] quarters in which he is now working. When he gets into his new laboratory he will turn out a number of good things and will without doubt call upon you to place them on the market.
