TLS signed “Thos. A. Edison,” one page, 8 x 10.5, From the Laboratory of Thomas A. Edison letterhead, September 15, 1916. Letter to J. W. Beatson, secretary of the National Economic League. In full: "Allow me to say that I fully appreciate your kind invitation to become a Member of the National Economic League. I regret I cannot please you by sending an acceptance, as it is my desire to retire as much as possible from matters of a public or semi-public nature. I am already overworked, and find that any connection with these affairs brings great additions to my mail, and thus adds to my burdens which are already heavy." Handsomely matted and framed under UV-resistant acrylic alongside a portrait to an overall size of 18.25 x 15.5. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds and some light creasing.
