Fineliner on paper, text added in photoshop as my calligraphy needs a bit of work.

Edison offered Tesla $50,000 to redesign his company’s DC generators and then refused to pay… but, for FAR FAR less, you can have a T-shirt that already works efficiently and Tesla won’t have to resign in protest this time.
When Tesla upgraded Edison's work, Nikola went to him and asked for his money.
Edison's response was, "You haven't learned to understand American humor."
For a year, Tesla worked odd jobs before going to work for George Westinghouse. And the rest, they say, is history.
Saint Tikhon’s mission learned of these and made certain to send a priest from the Colorado branch to visit him up at his home near Pike’s Peak, and occasionally drag him to Liturgy. His dabbling in Buddhism notwithstanding, he never renounced his faith and continued to have such men in his life.
Priests and their families in particular were targeted for extermination. Nicholas was the only male Tesla in generations to not have become a priest, or get married.
See, Fredrick got started late for those times in having a family, at 36, and HE was the youngest of six siblings.
Assuming one DID immigrate and his next oldest was the one to move to America later and got into law enforcement, he’d have been around 42 by 1920, so would have been 64 when Tesla was raided.
But that’s VERY speculative. Sounds like an “Orange Family Bad” meme to me.
Marconi had used 17 of Tesla's patents to make his wireless radio work. Edison wouldn't allow Tesla to use his patented light bulb for the Chicago Exposition. He had to come up with a two-piece bulb instead. And some people would later use an adapter for Tesla's light bulbs in Edison's fixtures.
The irony was that Edison was forced to switch from DC to AC power when he hired the German electrical engineer Charles Steinmetz. Later he merged his business with Conrad Electric to create General Electric.
And later still he was forced out of control of the company by his own board or directors.
