[D8847AAP], Letter from George Parsons Lathrop to Alfred Ord Tate, May 28th, 1888



"I wrote Edison yesterday (Sunday) about the arrangements for the private exhibition here, next Saturday. But I have now found a better way for Hamilton + King to come here, than the one then proposed. The New York trains go right by here + do not stop. But, instead of Hamilton + K. going out to Boston as I proposed, + then taking train back here, I find they can do as follows--which will be the best: ### Take the 1 P.M. Shore Line express from New York for Boston on Friday. Stop at Mansfield (where they are done about 6:30), + wait for an accomodation which leaves there in about 1/2 an hour + stops here (Readville), bringing them to this point about 7.23 without the trouble of going in to Boston + back. I will meet them at the station here (B+P RR) + conduct them to very comfortable quarters + supper. ### They will then have the evening to prepare for the next morning's exhibition to Mrs. H. ### Here is a point I want to know aobut. Mrs. H. wishes to have a good violinist here, to try one solo on the spot + see how the record comes out. I think it will be by all means be best to carry this out if it can be done. Will you see to it that Hamilton brings the right kind of a collecting funnel for this purpose? ### Please let me know if it can't be done to that Mrs. H. needn't write the violinist. But, as I say, better do it if possible."
