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


Aug. 24, 1898.
French Cable Co.,
44 Broad St.,
New York.
Dear Sirs:-
Inasmuch as my different interests, as well as some private enterprises which I am associated, will require to use the cable from time to time, both to and form this country, and as I have had filled with you some of yours past various cable addresses. I wish orders would be given that all cables intended for me and addressed according to any cable code filled in your office to be forwarded to Orange, N.J., and under no circumstances delivered to the Edison Building, or in fact, to anyone else than myself.
My principal reason for giving these instructions is that I find that cables addressed to me are delivered to the Edison Building and opened by unauthorized persons. I am therefore compelled to take the above course.
Asking that you kindly acknowledge receipt, I am,
Yours very truly,
Thomas A Edison
