[D8955ABC], Letter from William McQuade Clarke to Alfred Ord Tate, March 8th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Mr. A. O. Tate My dear sir: I tried to telephone you this morning in regard to Edison Phonograph Co. stock. I am told that some of the stock is held by some of the boys about the Laboratory and I would like to have them fix a price upon it as I may be able to sell it. Will you please telephone me tomorrow morning (as early as possible since it is a half holiday) starting quantity and price. We can probably make a trade by telephone but I am not authorized now to make a bid. Better get their offers in writing so that you can be safe in making me a firm offer. You may reach me by telephone at "New 100" (Office of H. L. Hartmt Co. 56 Bway) Perhaps you don't know who I am. You used to meet me at the Laboratory last srping when I went there early every day to look up the phonograph. You have also met me at the Electric Club several times and at the Hoffman. I want to buy some Metropolitan Phonograph stock also for which I can offer 34 today. Very Truly Yours W M.Clarke
