[LB026342], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to James Hood Wright, September 25th, 1888

Abstract

"I am going into New York to see you as soon as I can spare the time from my Laboratory work to discuss what course we had better take in the Light Company in relation to Mr. Tomlinson. ### In dealing with some personal matters for me he has acted in a way which appears to me, to say the least, very questionable. ### I feel that I should explain the affair fully to yourself and your firm and meantime would suggest that great care be exercised by the Light Company in any further dealings they may have with Mr. Tomlinson as their patent attorney. ### I write you on this subject rather than officially addressing the Light Company because Mr. Tomlinson was originally engaged to act for the Company after I had seen either you or one of your partners in relation to the matter." Yours very truly, [signed] TAE [autograph signature]
