[D8847AEC], Letter from Sylvester Baxter to Thomas Alva Edison, December 28th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[author identifies as secretary of Hemenway Southwestern Archaeological Expedition---a major anthropoligical undertaking and apparently the first of its kind into the American Southwest---see Wikipedia] I"As Mr. Cushing is still here in the East, detained by illness, please do not forward the phonograph ordered to be sent him in New Mexico until further notice, but forward when ready--as I understand they now soon will be,--the other two as request in my last, respectively to me at the above address and Mr. Hemenway at 40 Mt. Vernon St., Boston. When Mr. Cushing was recently in New York, a sudden illness prevented him from calling upon your agreeable to your kind invitation, but he hops soon to be able to avail himself of the privilege. Again thanking you for your kind courtesies to the Expedition, and wishing you a Happy New Year that will bring a grand success with the Phonograph, I remain" Most sincerely yous, Sylvester Baxter Sec'y Hemenway Sw. A. Expedition [Marginalia: "Ans. 7/1/89"]
