[D8805ACQ], Letter from George Milton Hopkins to Thomas Alva Edison, April 30th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Your letter duly received, I thank you for your kind offer of apparatus. Think I will try to avail myself of it next fall. The lecture went off well as you will notice by reading the enclosed clipping. You came in for more than your share of applause. ### I suppose you will receive your certificate of membership in the Brooklyn Institute of if it has not already reached you. I am very glad you wre willing to join. ### As to the phonograph. I intend to make a few experiments illustrating its principle, show some sound tracings on the its screen, make some tracings before the men by means of a new source, in the lantern, then show this old phonograph then the new one. ### I would like [unclear] you more at length upon this subject but I don't feel at liberty to take too much of your time, which I know is very valuable."
