Title

[D8850AAD], Letter from Horatio Nelson Powers to Thomas Alva Edison, January 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Col. Gouraud, my brother-in-law, wishes the particular phonograph which will go first to him in England, to utter some words appropriate to the inauguration of the introduction of the instrument in that country, and has expressed the strong desire that, after you and Mrs. Edison have spoken into it, it should be sent here for a message from his sister and a poem suitable for the occasion by myself, I wrote to say that Mrs. Powers and myself consent to his wishes. The Poem entitled; "The Phonograph Salutation" consisting of four stanzas, making sixteen lines in all, is now ready, and is a production, I believe, of wh' you will not be ashamed. ### Trusting that Col. Gouraud's plan will be agreeable to you, I am," Very faithfully yours, Horatio Nelson Powers, (Rev. Dr.)
