[D8960AAD], Letter from Franck Zeveley Maguire to Alfred Ord Tate, January 19th, 1889

Abstract

I have your letter of Jan’y 16th, which was rec’d shortly after I wrote you yesterday. I feel very sure that Sir. Gould does not possess the qualifications which you desire. Concerning Mr. Gould’s qualifications on the phonograph- I would have you thoroughly investigate that before giving him employment anyway. My idea was that if Gould’s qualifications were such as would fit him for the position, he is a man of good address and considerable business ability, and he would perhaps be a good man to take to China. I have no special interest in the matter, however, and do not desire you to think that I am pressing his application.
