Abstract

Will send his "Atlas of the osseous Anatomy of the human Ear" with fine plates which may interest TAE. Again suggests using curved membranes; wants time to work on phono, "especially as Preece is at it in England" & has read paper on new phono to Royal Soc. Preece also has paper in English Mech on phonoautographs & fails to give credit to Bell or Blake. Next Journal of Otology has Blake's article on calculating & drawing compound curves [could not find this journal title for vol 4]. TAE reply on back: "why do you not write English Mec & state that you devised that form long ago & I am witness of the fact= You notice that Preece states good articulation cannot be obtained. You know from what you have read that this statement is untrue. They should have stated that they were incompetent to obtain good articulation.
