This folder contains correspondence by Josiah C. Reiff, a longtime Edison associate who was involved in protracted litigation (George Harrington, Josiah C. Reiff, and Thomas A. Edison v. Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Co. et al.) arising from Edison's telegraph work during the 1870s. Among the items for 1908 are requests for loans and other personal favors from Edison, along with updates on the lack of progress in the litigation. Also included are numerous receipts from Reiff for money advanced by Edison. Some of the letters contain marginal notes by Edison instructing his secretary, Harry F. Miller, to send the money. One letter contains the following notation: "Reiff - you have stuck me at a very bad period, I have raised the $934 which I send but I can assure you it comes hard - E."
