Abstract

"I have seen Mr. Coulter of the "World" as you requested; he states that you promised positvely to deliver a Phonograph for shipment to Mr. Pulitzer three weeks after his conversation with you, which was about the 11th of June. He seemed very much annoyed at not having received the Phonograph or any word in regard to your inability to furnish it and expressed himself rather vigorously in regard to what he termed his discourteous treatment in the matter. I explained to him the impossibility of delivering a machine and apologized for our failure to notify him and think I succeeded in mollifying him somewhat. ### I delivered your message to the effect that you had sailed for Europe and would be pleased to exhibit the Phonograph to Mr. Putlitzer or any of his friends whom he might designate to you. Mr. Coulter stated that Mr. Pulitzer was to return to New York early in September and he thought it would be too late to show the machine to Mr. Pulitzer in England but promised to forward your message to him. I gave him your address as Care. Col. Gouraud." Yours very truly, Chas. P. Bruch [Marginalia: "O.K. E."]
