[D8847ACS], Letter from Wellington Bradley to Thomas Alva Edison, October 13th, 1888

Editor's Notes

From the blind person Ganonoque Canada who has called on you twice at your Laboratory. I respectuflly ask a favor of you as you could not fill your promises you made me in July to sell me a Phonograph four weeks from that time. Will you kindly use your influence with the Company that has charge of your Phonograph to let me have the first one they have ready for the market? I have been to a good deal of expence going to N.Y. twice after the Phonograph which was to have been ready for me at the time I went over accordign to your private secretary letters, the money I have laid out in these trips to N.Y. been earned by my own exertions, if you do all in your powers to have a Phonograph placed in my hands at the earliest possible time, you be conferring a benefit on me for which I will be truly thankfull. I will write to the firm you told me to correspond with as you directed, trusting you will have one in their hands by that time for me. Please reply. I remain yours respectfully, Wellington Bradley
