[D8959ADG], Letter from Jonathan Lewis Young to Edison Phonograph Works, Charles Batchelor, August 19th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[bad bleed through] "We have received the [instruments --] avensheugh at last. The delay in receiving these [illeg] caused very great inconvenience and annoyance to Mr. Mentier e Seuza, and if you did not intentionally ship them by the longest route, I shall be glad [illeg] and censure those in fault. ## Many of the articles were broken. 5 of the Edison glass jars and a great many porcelain tops. Will you make up this deficiency in your next shipment and state if the goods were sent at owner risk. ## We are anxiously expecting the 50 machines on order and shall hope to have advice of them very shortly. ## Please note that the last lot of goods were received without Advise Note or invoice. One or both of these should precede the shipment in order that we may check the consignment. ## The present shipment seemed to be most complete and we shall be glad if you can repeate it as soon as possible so that we may send the various articles to Holland or Norway. ## The roll top to the treadle machine looks nice but the hinges are very flimsy and the strain is very great on them. Can you not improve this. ## Let us have a line as soon as you can to say how things are progressing, and send us anything new in the [illeg] accessories."
