[D8853ABL], Letter from Armin Tenner to Alfred Ord Tate, February 23rd, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I read the catalogues you kindly gave me concerning the Pohonoplex and found it easily digestible. After meeting you yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing Mr Edison to whom I mentioned the fact that every message in Europe is recorded. Mr Edison thought that he could construct the Phonoplex so as to meet [unclear] requirement. Now if Mr. Edison succeeds in maiking the instrument adaptable for European Telegraphy I think that the invention can be well introduced over there and I would like to handle it on the Continent. ### Mr Hamilton ought to take out with him two sets of instruments modified as indicate--one for Mr. Gouraud and for me on. I also suggest that you send for me a set of Electrotypes as used in your Catalogue as I want to use them in a German Catalogue I propose to have printed. I shall be thankful to you if you assure me before sailing that I can rely on being made your Continental Agent for the Phonoplex. I will accept your terms trusting that they will be reasonable. You can direct your answer care this office. I sail Saturday next." Very respectfully yours, Armin Tenner [Marginalia: "Mr E, This is good man for agent. A.O.T." TAE marg: "Yes-I will experiment on it."
