Title

[D8959AFJ], Letter from Hugh De Coursey Hamilton to Thomas Alva Edison, October 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[from London] Thinking it may be of some interest to you I am sending a sample of flexible metallic tubing & a white wax record of the drones of the Scotch Bag Pipes.##The drones as you know give continued sustained notes which is the cause of the record appearing like watered silk, nothing this peculiarity I tried a record with the [chant?] alone & found the appearance totally changed proving the sustained notes were the cause of this striking effect.##It was very pleasant seeing you in London & I thank you for your reassuring message by Mr. Tate to the effect that you are satisfied with the way I have been working here & when tired of England you will be pleased to have me return to you.##I have promised Mr. Tate to give him a report of factor fortnightly."
