[X154A4AS], Letter from Uriah Hunt Painter to Edward Hibberd Johnson, January 11th, 1885

Abstract

re: incorrect news report that contract for lighting Wash Monument had been given to Edison Iso. Co. This has put pressure on monument board to advertise for proposals. Swan and Maxim people are "red hot"; one offered to do it half price, the other for free. Please send me copy of Iso Co. agency contract with Clarke; looks like "transparent fraud" on part of the Co.
