Abstract

"I have made the graphophone article as mild as I can, leaving the British Association papers and discussion, like the lady did the [unclear] to speak for themselves. But between you and I, I see no room for doubt as to Tainter's claims. First-Edison has no claim in this country appears clear, and there seems no trace of his ever having described the use of a wax film, except as a *foundation* for a foil covering. ### He has worked throughout (till recently) on the principle of indenting a metal surface, as against Tainter's plan of engraving a wax one. As you know my tendencies would be rather with Edison, but editorially I have no tendencies and try to be quite just. I am trying to arrange with Newberry & [unclear] to own the seprator at their metallurgical work. It would be in their line."
