[D8849AAN], Letter from George H Hartwell to Thomas Alva Edison, June 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Learning that Col. Gouraud who I understand has charge of the sale the 'Phonograph' in foreign countries and the appointment of agencies in the same is in town this week and expects to return to England the last of this week. I write to you to see if an appointment can be made with him to meet him at an early date. ### A friend of mine, Mr. Chas. L. Seager, of the Seager + Guernsey Co., City of Mexico. London + New York, which publishes the Mexican Financier, and does not export business-- N.Y. office at Bowling Green, would like to see Col. Gouraud in regard to placing the 'Phonograph' in Mexico. They are in every way a reliable first-class house with ample [unclear] and possess superior facilities for handling and placing American goods on the Mexican Market. Understanding that Col. Gouraud is much of the time with you at Orange, I thought best to see if you could kindly make an appointment for us to meet him. Mr. Seager would also much like to see yourself and laboratory and see the 'Phonograph' on its native health 'as it were though he would meet the Col in N.Y. if more desirable. Will you please confer with the Col, and fix a time and we will be on hand. Any time, after tomorrow the 6th will do as I have to be away from N.Y. tomorrow afternoon. Shall return in the evening. Please write or telegraph me at the above address. Pray accept my hearty congratulations on the recent addition to your family, from yours very truly," Geo. H. Hartwell [Marginalia: "Ans: 9/6/88"]
