Abstract

Some time ago I call upon you with the Bearer Mr. [Soren?] to get copies or tracings of the plans of the interior arrangements of the up town stations as well as a blue print of the Underground & a copy of the photos of the outside of the stations if you possessed any. These you agreed to let me have if I brought you a man to make copies.##When I called you were busy & the plans not ready & I set Mr [Soren?] at the plans of the Pearl St District I have made a wonderfully fine map for Paris. This is practically completed & I am very anxious to get the other plans referred to at once. I trust yourself or Mr Van Vleck will be able to start him upon this at once, the time is ery short & there is much to be done. Trusting this will not prove inconcenient to you as Mr Edison has placed particular stress upon securing this data for the Exposition.
