Nikola Tesla Rare Autograph Letter Signed in 1898 Rare autograph letter signed, "N Tesla," 8" x 10" on blue paper, New York, January 4, 1898. He writes: "Dear Luka, I forward with messenger a photograph of M. Newman which had we known what we now know [illeg.] have been excellent. In two other views the lines are much stronger but the old fellow moved a little. We took one of the other [illeg.] for publication. The hand - my own which is extended for a brotherly shake to my friends -- is much better. I feel confident I save a [illeg.] which for photography will be better than [illeg.] but I have to spend some time yet to bring it to perfection..." He adds a short postcript asking his correspondent to present his compliments to Mr. Newman. Overall very clean and bright. Simply matted and framed with a portrait of Tesla. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
