[D8850AAQ], Letter from George Edward Gouraud to Thomas Alva Edison, February 18th, 1888

Editor's Notes

[Magniphone] "Several years ago you were good enough to give me your original Magihone, [megaphone?] and promised to have it packed up and sent to me. I very much wish you would have this done now. I have a splendid place to show its interesting powers on a broad terrace balcony at Little Menlo, where I should like to have it when all the world comes to hear your voice in the first phonogram. ### I would also like you to let some one get together for me an example (complete with the miscellaneous supplies,) of each one of your inventions, as sort of a collection for the 'Edison room' at Little Menlo." Gouraud [TAE marg: "The old megaphone is all rusted to pieces; soon as I get time will make another who get you some apparatus or large phottograph which think would be better as the apparatus wld cost thousands of ollars."
