[LB029128], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Jesse Seligman, April 16th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"Your letter of 13th instant to Mr. Edison, addressed to "Menlo Park," only came to hand this morning. ### Mr. Edison regrets very much that it will be impossible for him to call and see you at your office to-day, as you request. He was working all of last night, and expects to be working every night this week, on a new experiment which he has taken up. If, however, the matter in regard to which you desire to see Mr. Edison is important, the latter will arrange to go in to New York and see you one day this week, if you will let hi know which day would be most convenient for yourself. If the subject is one that could possibly be conducted by correspondence, Mr. Edison would much prefer that made of treating it, as some of his experiments are in such a condition, he does not like to leave them [unclear] for a short trip but he will not allow this consideration to prevent his calling upon you should you deem it desirable. ### Awaiting your reply." ### I am, yours very truly, A.O.Tate
