Abstract

New name mention: TAE. "TAE has received your letter 4th instant. His idea of the Japanese and Chinese business is for a man to go out there and establish agencies throughout both countries and sell phonographs. He does not consider it necessary, nor will he consent to solicit the influence of anybody in connection with that business, nor is he willing to give any options on it. TAE's belief is that the phonograph, with an active run at its back, will sell itself in any country and he desires to keep right down to the sale of machines." # Goes on to say that he does not know Lippincott well enough to provide a letter of introduction, but that Gilliland or his representative would be "very pleased" to give him one.
