Thomas A. Edison, Esq.,
Care of The N.J. and Pa. Concentrating Works,
Ogdensburg, N.J.
Dear Mr. Edison:-
I hand you herewith a letter from the E.S. Greeley and Company to which is attached of their special catalogues in regard to the Edison Lalande Battery. I made an arrangement with the E.S. Greeley and Company in regard to the sale of batteries in Central and South America, and their communication which I now hand you is in response to my enquiry regarding the progress of their work in those countries, where they have had an excellent connection. Up to the present time they have not done any large amount of business, but, as they state, they have been engaged upon the preliminary work of introduction. We are watching them very closely and will push them vigorously in the same way as we have commenced to push all the other Supply House who handle our goods. I have now a proposition, which I will send you in a day or two, in regard to the sale of Batteries in Great Britain; I think you will consider it entirely satisfactory, and it will permit us to commence shipping goods to Great Britian immediately after Mr. Philip S. Dyer returns to London; he expects to go back in about a fortnight. Please return to me Greely’s letter and the catalogue attatched.
Yours very truly,
A.O. Tate
Private Secretary.
