[D8848ADF], Letter from Jesse H Lippincott to Thomas Alva Edison, August 10th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[typesetting] "Your favor of the 8th., with enclosure to hand. This Company has had no representative in Philadelphia; a party connected with the American Graphophone Company, has we understand been giving exhibitions, in a quiet way of the Graphophone, the Liniotype [Linotype?], and a new printing press; he talks to the Graphophone has a young lady set it up on the type-setting machine then prints it on the press; we did not know that he was representing the Graphophone in that City, has he had no authority from us to do it. We have written him to-day giving him an extract from our contract, with you and the one relating to impartiality in the introduction of the machines, so that hereafter, we hope that he will do the right thing. We trust that you are annoyed by the letter from Philadelphia, as it is our intention to honestly adhere to the letter and spirit of our contract to the very best of our ability." Very truly yours, Jesse H. Lippincott.
