Abstract

"I was taken sick Monday and have been confined to the house ever since, otherwise I would have been out to see you, to get your views in regard to using the present form of Phonograph for establishing the agencies and getting them under way, which will probably fill in between now and the time when we will be ready to supply the new ones. It will, of course, be greatly to our advantage if we do not put out any of the machines until we can furnish the ones embracing all the improvements. ### It takes about two weeks to get first-class cuts. My descriptive pamphlet is about ready to go to print. If the external appearance of the machine is greatly changed I suppose I should have new cuts. I have written elsewhere inquiring if these changes were going to make any alteration in the price." TAE marginalia: "There is practically no change in design so your cuts will do." E] "phono quantities"
