[D8818ASY], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Paul D Dyer, September 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

TAE read your letter 27th and asked me to reply. You probably learned through newspapers that TAE disposed of his rights to merchandise the phonograph, these now vested in the North American Phonograph Co., No 160 Broadway, NYC. They have already transferred their rights to the district which you desire to represent to our friend, McLaughlin, whose address is Oroville, Ca. I am not positive McLaughlin takes Colorado, but you can easily find out, and I will be glad to assist you. The next thing TAE will bring out will be his Ore Milling process. You have been waiting a long time for this business to materialize, but for the past year TAE gave very little attention to anything apart from the phonograph. The latter is off his hands now, having succeeded in perfecting it to a degree none of us even thought possible. He is now earnestly to work on Ore Milling, and I have no doubt you will come in somewhere in that connection as soon as he is ready to take up the commercial side of the business.
