April 5, 1893.
My dear Mr. Edison,
In order that you may not misunderstand the significance of the difference which exists in the weekly report of the Edison Manufacturing Company between the Accounts Receivable and the Accounts Payable, I desire to inform you that the Edison Phonograph Works up to the present time have not been able to render any bills against the Manufacturing Company, except for a few small items, the reason being that they have not completed the orders upon which the work is being carried through. The prices charged by the Phonograph Works are altogether too high all along the line. They are made up on the old basis of estimating and not on a reasonable manufacturing basis. As soon as the Works complete their orders I am going into these prices very carefully with Gladstone and Ballou.
Yours truly,
[A.O. Tate?]
Thomas A. Edison, Esq.,
Orange, N. J.
