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


March 2, 1900
Mr. W.L. Crandall
Verona, N.Y.
Dear Sir:--
Replying to yours of the 16th ult in answer to our advertisement in the American Grover, for a Manager for our new store at Edison, N.J., beg to ask that you will advise us in detail as to your experience in this particular line of work, also send us the names of both business and personal references.
We expect to open a new store early in the Spring, and have not as yet decided upon our Manager. The store will be located at Edison, N.J. where we employ about 350 to 400 people, and later on probably will increase this amount. Edison is rather an unattractive place, there being nothing located there except our own works. It is also a new place; we are just building up, but there is no store within two and a half miles.
We have this past season built fifty houses in addition to some twenty or twenty-five more we already had, and expect this coming summer to build fifty more, so that we will have quite a little town within the next twelve months.
If the above does not give you the information you desire, we will be glad to answer any questions you desire to ask.
Yours very truly,
W.S. Mallory
