Ready for manufacture in Edison’s “Storage Battery buildings”

ANS, one page, lightly-lined, 5 x 7.5, circa September 1922. Brief note in response to his son. In full: “No further reports from Burke—will mfr in Storage Battery buildings. Don’t require much room.” His son’s initial letter, dated September 2, 1922, is stapled below, in part: “Burke mentions two more reports to come. Would like to see them. Has he suggested location of the plant?” Overall toning, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a seemingly unrelated sketch of a table leg, possibly in Edison’s hand. The “Burke” referenced may be James Burke, a member of the ‘Edison Pioneers,’ an organization composed of his oldest associates and employees. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
