[D8848AAT], Letter from Charles Sumner Tainter to Franck Zeveley Maguire, March 26th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Thank you very much for your kind words in my behalf in the Sunday Capital. There seems to be a desire on the part of certain people connected with the Graphophone to profit at my expense by representing that the machine is the work of Prof. Bell, and I assure you that your statement is fully appreciated by me. I am sorry, however, that you are connected with the Edison interests as I should much prefer having you on our side. ### I was under the impression that matters had been satisfactorily arranged with you in regard to our Agency for the Pacific Coast and only a few days ago I wrote to Mr. J. R. Roche of San Francisco who had written to me about that territory and advised him to correspond with you upon that subject. ### I shall be glad to know why you have deserted our cause for up to a day or two ago I had supposed that things were harmonious. ### Mrs. Tainter and myself send regards to Mrs. Maguire and as soon as you let us know your address will have great pleasure in calling upon you both." Yours sincerely, Chas. S. Tainter [Marginalia: "Original is not a dictated letter by appears in the handwriting of Mr. Tainter."]
