Abstract

"I have your favor of the 26th inst. And note contents. I shall be glad to come over to New York for a day or so upon notfication from you. I did not intend to make a public exhibition here at first in the strictest sense of the word. ### In case however I can arrange for the White House exhibition I would like you to come over. ### If you can succeed in duplicating the wax you will do what the other fellows have not accomplished yet. It is a very important part of the business without doubt. ### I trust that Edison will nTo be liberal with the old Phonograph crowd for they have done everything to boom the other machine and hurt the phonograph. Especially is this true of Painter. ### I wish you could arrange to have the Phonograph figure matter run through at as early a date as possible because I do not want to have Wiman lose interest. I think we are going to make some money out of the scheme. Let me hear from you frequently." Yours very truly, F.Z. Maguire
