When in [-----] recently I saw your wonderful invention, the phonograph, and then determined to write and congratulate you not only upon that but on all of your inventions. As an old-time operator and friend of yours, I am proud of you, Tom, and often think of the time 24 years ago when you and I worked side by side. Should you ever come this way I want you to run out here and see me and mine. I have practiced medicine since 1870 and for the last 13 years at Kansas City. I sold out there last July and removed here so as to be near my publishers as I am engaged in publishing a large medical work. The concordance Repertory of thte Materia Medica. 6 volumes of 900 pages each. With profoundest regards, I am as ever your friend, W,D Gentry [name mentions: Thos Edison W.D Gentry old no. 4 to Boston ]
