Abstract

"I enclose herewith Mr. Edison's notes in regard to the Toy Phonograph business, which you telephoned for to-day. I also enclose for your information copy of Mr. Edison's affidavit, which I forwarded to-day to the Department State Board of Assessors, Trenton, N.J., together with RETURN, relative to the affairs of the Edison Phonograph Co. Mr. Lewis dictated the affidavit. Eaton & Lewis' letter (also enclosed) contains their views in regard to this matter. ### I telegraphed you to-day as follows: 'January 18th, Maguire,' which means that the articles re Tomlinson and Gilliland appeared in the N.Y. papers on that date. My recollection is that the EVENING SUN article was printed in their issue of 17th January, and all the morning papers had it the next day. I send you clipping from the 'N.Y. Herald' to verify date. ### Just as present the Laboratory is crowded with Y.M.C.A. delegates, and things are in more or less confusion. ### I will mail this letter in the 'Special Boston' box at the Grand Central Depot to insure its quick delivery."
