[D8818ARO], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Thomas Alva Edison, August 14th, 1888

Editor's Notes

I saw Lippincott this morning, and he agreed to take thirty machines per day for a period of six months, which period shall date from the time the first machines from the new factory are delivered. I telegraphed this information to you this afternoon. # I received your telegram in relation to Spanish-Colonial matters and Phonograph tax. I attended a meeting of the Spanish-Colonial Company to-day, and the agreement was executed. Navarro announced that his friends in Havana had obtained an exclusive license for the city of Havana covering a period of fifty years. They want estimates from us for ten thousand lights, and I am writing Insull to-night, giving him a few pointers. # Nothin has come yet from Gouraud in regard to the number of machines he will take. # I have received advice that the Gilliland party arrived on time. We should hear from Gouraud to-morrow.
