Abstract

"In establishing sub-agents for the promotion of the Phonograph business, it seems to me that each one of them will want to have a man in their employ who is thoroughly familiar with the construction of the Phonograph. One who will be able to remedy any slight defect in the workings of the instrument, to the end that when an instrument is not in perfect working order, it will not have to be returned to us, or to the factory. ### I would therefore like to have the privilege of sending a man to your factory at Orange, from each one of my sub-agents, for the purpose indicated above, and to have permission for them to remain a sufficient length of time to accomplish the purpose in view." Very truly yours, The North American Phonograph Co. By Jesse H. Lippincott Prest. [Marginalia: "Say all right that I can take them on in our assembling and test room at factory inside of 15 days. E."
