[LB031114], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to George Munro, June 26th, 1889

Abstract

"I have received your letter of 12th instant, in regard to Mr. Wiley's indebtedness to yourself, and am sorry that you did not bring this matter before us earlier. Mr. Wiley appears to have borrowed money right and left while he was in London, notwithstanding the fact that we advanced him some $850 more than he was able to account for. I take pleasure in enclosing Exchange on London for Twenty-five [unclear], which Mr. Edison has instructed me to forward to you, and I cannot tell you how much we regret the deception which was practiced by Mr. Wiley, who succeeded in deceiving not only ourselves, but, it appears, everybody he came in contact with while abroad. He was promptly discharged upon his return, and should he ever turn up in London again, it will not be in connection with any business [unclear] Edison." Yours very truly, AO Tate
