[D8847AAT], Letter from Everett Frazar to Thomas Alva Edison, June 4th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"On Saturday night last, June 2nd, at the meeting of the New England Soc'y, on your behalf, as requested, I extended the invitation to the Scociety to visit your laboratory on Thursday evening, June 9th at 8 p.m., to the extent of 150 members, gentlemen only. A loud call was at once made for tickets for ladies in the families of members. I was then obliged to make use of your further favor and kindness by stating that you would give a matinee exhibit tion of the phonograph on Saturday, June 9th at 4 p.m. At the close of the meeting, 41 members had taken tickets, with applications for 67 ladies. Without doubt, the whole number of 150 gentlemen in the evening and 150 ladies in the afternoon will all be made up, and I am sure you will confer upon them a great pleasure in allowing them to inspect your laboratory and to witness exhibits of the wonderful phonograph. I was appointed chairman of a committee with Messrs. Harvey and Bore, to take charge of the matter for the Society and will call at the laboratory at half past seven on Thursday evening, probably with the other two gentlemen of the committee, to assist you in receiving them. Kindly bear in mind these dates and should you have anything to suggest, please use the telephone in Orange on Tuesday or Wednesday evening. ### I congratulate you upon the addition to your family and trust that Mrs. Edison and the little one are, as I hear, getting on nicely." Yours very truly, Everett Frazar
