[D8945AAD], Letter from George H Hartwell to Alfred Ord Tate, January 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Your of the 8th is received, for which I am obliged. The matter of the Phonograph at London Crystal Palace Exhibition, that I have reference to, was about the showing of the machine there some little time after Col. Gouraud and Mr. Hamilton went to England last summer with the machine. I think that it showed action there such as the reproducing in a large hall of the chorus and instruments, making it, practically, an exhibition machine. Am I correct in my supposition? I don not find account of it in any of the papers here, although I think it was in the Herald some time last August. There was quite an account of it but I fail to find it. If you have such an account, or any account of the performance, or can get it or put me in the way to obtain it, I would be very greatly obliged. I am sorry to trouble you but I hardly know how to get at what I want, otherwise. An early reply will oblige,
