[D8847ADF], Letter from John W Fortune to Alfred Ord Tate, November 10th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I was sorry not to have met you as I expected at your Wall St. office, but suppose you were delayed by press of business. ### I did not succeed in inducing Mr. Lippincott to do anything for me, but I think I might have done so if you had been along, and perhaps you can do so yet. I assure you it will be esteemed a very great personal favor if you can make some arrangement to give us a phonograph for Toronto if only temporarily. I want to keep up the receipts of that insitution as much as possible, and would also like to get the machines so well known in Canada that I could put a little money in the company there, and help things along. Please try and see if some way cannot be thought of to overcome the difficulties presented by Mr. Lippincott. I assure you if you can help in this matter, I will repay you not only there but in other directions where I can be of service. I hope family well." Yours truly J.W. Fortune [Marginalia: "Private" "Ans Nov 13/88"]
