[LB035081], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Michael J B Messemer, December 11th, 1889

Abstract

I was very sorry not to have been able to comply with your request to testify at Feeks' inquest, but my engagements were such that it was impossible for me to get away. I suggested sending my Assistant, Mr. Kennelly, and received a telegram from you this morning, inviting him to go, but when he reached New York the verdict had already been delivered.##I understand that there is to be another inquest upon the body of the man Clausen, killed a day or so ago, and if the Coroner in charge of this case would like Mr. Kennely to appear before him, the former can go to New York at any time that he is notified. Of course he expects no compensation. Yours very truly, [signed] TAE
