Abstract

"For the purpose of convenient reference I am having all Mr. Edison's contracts copied in consecutive order, according to their dates, and in groups with relation to the business to which they refer, in a Contract Book, and in searching for certain agreement between Mr. Edison and the old London Edison Electric Light Co., I have discovered that several of these are missing. ### It has occurred to me that copies of these contracts are in your possession, and I would, therefore ask you if you would very kindly have duplicates made of any agreements between Mr. Edison and the old London Edison Electric Lighting Co., also between Mr. Edison and the Edison & Swan United Electric Lighting Co., together with copies of any other contracts which directly or indirectly impose an obligation upon Mr. Edison? I may say that I write you at Mr. Edison's suggestion, and he will be greatly indebted for any assistance which you can render us in the above connection. ### I will, of course, remit upon advice the amount of any expenses which you are oblige to incur in complying with my request." Yours very truly, A.O. Tate
