[D8905AAD], Letter from Everett Frazar to Alfred Ord Tate, January 10th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Summary: Everett Frazer of Frazer & Co., Shanghae and Yokohama, is writing to A.O Tate, Edison's secretary, hoping that as Edison is arriving home soon, they can meet at Frazer's office and make arrangements "at once" for an expert to go to the laboratory and "study up" the phonograph, preparatory to going to Japan via the "Abyssinia." Frazer includes a transcription of a letter from his partner, Mr. Lindsley, for Edison. Lindsley says that the Niwas want to buy Edison dynamos but they want to buy them in Berlin. Lindsley wants to ascertain from Edison the prices named by the Berlin company to the Niwas. As soon as he is informed on the phonograph business he will take steps to get proper letters from the Japanese Minister at Washington and the Japanese Consul General in New York.
