[D8959ADV], Letter from Jonathan Lewis Young to Edison Phonograph Works, Charles Batchelor, September 10th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I beg to hand you by Colonel Gouraud’s instructions, copies of letters which we have recently addressed to Mr. Edison in regard to the delivery of machines etc. ### We are very glad to tell you that your mailing gram arrived in splendid condition. It was a great success and has been repeated many times. It will now be shown as a curiosity. We shall be glad to have some more of them and in face samples of everything that you are using in America in the business, including the Cabinets, which we hope for the sake of the cost of the carriage - which is an item we must now face in view of the large order we have placed with you - will be packed as closely as possible. We understand from the remarks in the Inspector’s handbook that you have now got at the best way of packing, but when we tell you that the last four Phonographs received here packed in 13 cases, you will appreciate our desire to have things well, and at the same time, closely packed. ### As regards shipment we would like to get on to some line that would bring goods direct to London at a very low rate. We think the National Line would be a good one, and shall be glad to hear that you have made inquiries. The gram you last sent us workout for carriage alone ever and seats each, which of course for practice business purposes would be a great draw back on their sale.
