#6059 - Thomas Edison Letter Signed Estimate: $800+

Edisonian charity for a supplier of "medicinal oxygen and other medicinal gases"

Letter to Thomas Edison from his son Charles, endorsed at the top by Thomas Edison in pencil, “OK if no fire risk to us, E,” two pages, 8.5 x 11, September 25, 1923. The ALS by Charles Edison, in part: "Down at the salvage division there is a little tin building that stands out all by itself and formerly used as a garage for 4 cars. It is now idle. I desire to rent this little building in the interest of a Mrs. Knight, who thru a series of misfortunes has become the object of my personal charity. For the past 25 years she has been supplying the principal hospitals in New England with medicinal oxygen and other medicinal gases…During the time she was laid up with pneumonia…and also recovering from having been smashed up by a truck her little business was in the hands of two men who properly looted it…She needs now a place to set up the laboratory & that's what I want to use the little tin garage at salvage for. May I have your permission?" In fine condition, with uniform toning.
