[D8946ACB], Letter from Philip Sidney Dyer to Alfred Ord Tate, April 1889

Abstract

Add name mention: Gilliland] Hammer is in Paris. Boys are hard at work. You must arrange to come over. I will be here for 10 days and then go to Paris for 4 or 5 days. Gouraud treated Hammer unfairly. He cabled Edison to cable Hammer not to exhibit his phonograph in Paris before he had given his exhibit and lecture on the 16th inst. Gouraud borrowed Hammer's phonograph, pretending to need it for some lecture in England, but really to keep it out of his hands in Paris as long as possible. Hammer feels Gouraud played him. I sympathize with Hammer because he had treated Gouraud so fairly. Gouraud makes me tired and I feel that Edison will also be fatigued. You remember I warned you two years ago against Gilliland. For over four years I advised my brother Dick to look out for Tomlinson and not get too thick with him.
