[D8955ACR], Letter from William B Lomas to Alfred Ord Tate, August 9th, 1889

Abstract

[interesting sample of musicians' perspective] I received an invitation to visit the Laboratory at Ornage, to play a few solos in the Phonograph, which I must decline. I am obliged to you for the invitation, but as it will not benefit me in any shape by an advertisement or financially, I think I will not come, Wangemann told me that it would advertise me when I was there last time, but it didn’t and I doubt if one of the tubes ever went to Europe at all. ## Now, if there were to be a number of celebrities to perform in the Phonograph, I would most willingly and gladly accept, under the impression of getting an ad., however I am greatly obliged to you, for thinking of me.
