J.S. Collins, Esq.,
#130 Bay Street, Savannah, Ga.
Dear Sir:-
I beg to acknowledge with many thanks the receipt of your esteemed favor of 23rd ultimo, informing me that the Electric Railroad of Savannah awarded the contract for the equipment of their Road to Mr. Slattery, the Agent of the Edison General Electric Company. I am much gratified to learn that the Directors of the Railroad adopted the Edison system, and I appreciate very highly the effort which you were kind enough to make in favor of the Edison General Company. Rest assured that neither yourself nor the Directors will regret your decision in this matter and the future will show that you have made no mistake in entrusting to the Edison’s Gen’l. Company the equipment of your road.
Thanking you for the expressions of confidence concerning myself contained in your letter.
I beg to remain, yours very truly,
(Signed Thos, A. Edison)
