[D8955ABH], Letter from John B Powell (Philadelphia) to Thomas Alva Edison, April 5th, 1889

Editor's Notes

T.A. Edison Esq. Dear Sir I am making a Spring Motor for Sewing Machines to have understood that a power of this kind could be used to run the Phonograph. The power is uniform, and will rotate the cylinder, at a regular speed, until it requires rewinding, it is very compact, and cheap. It is the only motor that has met the approval of the S.M. people. If you think that it could be used to advantage by you. I will get one up at my expense. Yours truly, John B. Powell 620 N 8th st Philada
