Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


Copy of telegram sent to
San Francisco, Cal., March 1
Copy of telegram sent to Louis Glass, No. 323 Pine St.,
"Edison and Lippincott have agreed with Cheever Gilliland on division of Capital Stock of Slot Company subject to your approval; only obstacle in way of combination being actually effected is that Gilliland insists on furnishing cabinet work, which Edison will not consent to. We want you to use your influence towards getting Gilliland to withdraw this demand; otherwise Edison Lippincott will start manufacture of nickel-slot machine patented by Lombard, which they control. I anticipate your unqualified support. Advise me immediately of your action in this connection. A.O Tate."
Copy of Mr. Glass's reply to the above, rec'd. March 13, 1890
"You have my hearty support. Have written Cheever and Gilliland today. It was understood that latter would annul his contract at any time for sake of harmony. This matter can be adjusted. Do not be hasty. LOUIS GLASS."
