[D8848ADB], Letter from Kruse and Flannigan to George S Evans, August 6th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[from Norway, MI] "Your favor of July 27th, at hand. ### We filed our order for Phonograph, with the Edison Company, last fall, and they wrote that we would probably be supplied in January last. We are very much distressed for help as can only be furnished by a stenographer or one of these machines. This is a small country town, remote from places where stenographers are plenty, and in order to obatin that help we should be obliged to bring a man several hundred miles and besides, employ him for at least one year, at a price almost twice as high as they can be got for in the cities. This, it is quite plain, would not be desirable, and we wish that under the circumstances you would make an exception in our case, and send us the machine without compelling us to wait until your local or State agencies are organized, and ready to supply. ### Please let us hear from you." Very truly yours, Kruse & Flannigan. R.C.H. (Dictated) [Marginalia: " Respectfully referred to Mr. Edison. This looks as if Phonograph will be used in isolated places. Jesse H. Lippincott."]
