Title

[D8955ACK], Letter from Edward Hibberd Johnson to Thomas Alva Edison, June 24th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[Letterhead of Sprague Electric Railway and Motor Co.] This is awkward; why don't you suggest "Phonotype." It is a word which literally describes the modus Operandi by which the note was produced###I want an instrument as soon as I can get one for use up in the country As soon as I can get it, I will rent One for my office; I take a lot of stuff home with me every night & it would save if I could dictate my remarks to a phono & bring down the cylinder in the morning. Is there any prospect of my getting the one you promised. If not I'll rent two & wait until later.
