Abstract

"I beg to acknowledge your letter of the 11th inst., reference to the matter it refers to I would say that the suggestion I made to Dr Peterson to suggestion which privately I consider to be a sound one was given in a private letter to that gentleman apart from my correspondence in the same envolope on Mr Edison's behalf. I had no intention of making that suggestion public through him rather directly or indirectly and I was much surprised to hear that he had made any use of it even in conversation with yourself or others. I therefore telegraphed to him at once in pursuance of your views and I also took the step of withdrawing the suggestions in my private letter last he should give them any attributed publicity."
