Abstract

I enclose you an extract of a letter I wrote to our Agent, Dyer, Antwerp, Belgium, re the Paris Exhibition of '89. # I want to have you make no promises re this exhibition; and to hold your rights and apparatus to benefit the Lamp Co, and the manufacturers in this country, and through them yourself. # I want to have the Phonograph near these exhibits, so as to attract attention to them. # You can show the loud speaking Telephone, and the Quadruplex. # I write this to impress on you the necessity of not being bound to other parties by promises to exhibit the Phonograph entirely in their charge. It is a matter of great importance that we have your exhibitions kept together, and that you hold out for the best space in the Exhibition. [includes attached enclosure from Dyer] TAE marg: " Gouraud has the right - Have Dyer see Gouraud] [New name mention: Philip S. Dyer.]
