[LB030132], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Queen (James W.) & Co, May 30th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"In your letter to us under date 29th instant, wherein you refer to our having returned your draft for [$568.34?], you state that the return of this draft was the first notification you have had that your bills were not satisfactory to us. This is an oversight on the part of some of your employees, as we have a letter from you under date 28th instant, wherein you discuss the defects of the woodwork of the instruments covered by these bills. The defects are not the result of packing, but are caused by green wood having been used in the manufacture of the instruments. They have warped and cracked, and we certainly should not be expected to pay for the repairs which will be necessary to put these instruments in proper condition. You ask us to staste what we consider would be a fair allowance. We have made an estimate of the cost of repairs and have found that five per cent from the amount of your bills will cover it."
