[D8955AAS], Letter from Algernon Sydney Biddle to Thomas Alva Edison, February 18th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Dear Sir:- My friend, Professor George F. Barker, told me a few days ago that you expected your phonograph would soon be perfected, and I write to ask you whether you have made any arrangement with any individual or company for the manufacture, disturbution, or sale of this intrument in the State of Pennsylvania. If you have not made any such final arrangement, I should be glad to know what your ideas are, as several friends of mine who are among our most active and energetic business men might, I think, like to form a company to introduce this invention when perfected. When you answer me please let me know when the invention will be mechanically perfected so as to be capable of useful introduction among business men. You may recall that our firm represented you in the case of E. H. Wilson & Co. vs. Thomas A. Edison. Yours respectfully A. Sydney Biddle
