#6056 - Thomas Edison Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $800+

Draft ALS in pencil, signed “E,” one page, 8.5 x 11, June 23, 1923. Edison's response to a letter sent to him by the Reinbold Metallurgical Company offering to sell a mine, written on the letter's first page. Edison writes, in part: "I have a long contract with Standard Essence & will not work a mine—I bought the Swazy mine & paid $5000—I will give you $3000, for the adjacent mine which I understand is called the Bull Con—neither of these mines have any value to me as long as the Standard Essence Co. remains in business & furnishes me Lithia…of course I know you will not accept my offer but that is all I will give." Includes a carbon copy of the typed letter sent to Herman Reinbold containing this information. In fine condition.
