This letterbook covers the period December 1894-February 1895. Most of the correspondence is by Edison and Walter S. Mallory, vice-president of the company. The letters deal mainly with sand and ore orders, personnel matters, equipment, and supplies. Some letters relate to delays in reopening the Ogden plant and difficulties in paying the company's taxes. Also included are inquiries regarding a search for an apprentice electrician (one example has been selected). One letter contains the observation that Edison's preoccupation with briquette manufacturing has left him without "time to keep up with electrical matters." Another item is a request to examine the cost accounting system at the Bethlehem Iron Co. The spine is marked "Letters" and "Dec 7th to Feb 11 1895." The book contains 496 numbered pages and an index. Less than 10 percent of the book has been selected. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
