[D8960AAG], Letter from Everett Frazar to Alfred Ord Tate, February 4th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Mr Alex Tison, middle aged lawyer, 40 Wall st. has lately been appointed by the Jap. Minister in Washington to fill the law chair in the Tokyo Univeristy in place of Dr. Storr's (of Orange) son Charles [B. Storrs, ] who as just returned after a three years engagement in Tokyo. I am very much pleased with Mr Tison, and he seems to have good common sense business views on Electrical & Phono progress with the Japaense,a nd has arranged in his contract that he is to have spare time to devote to [?] on such matters as these to his own & the Jap Govt's profit. I think with the latter I shall give him to Mr. Lindsley that he can be made good help to us, and I have got him to promise to go out to the Laboratory on Wednesday p.m. at 1 1/2 or 2 1/2 to be at your place say about 3 p.m. and I will be glad to have line from you tomorrow to reach me Wed a.m. saying that you will be there, and can let him hear the Phono see the Electric Light & have a quickrun thru the Phono Works. I shall be greatly obliged for your kindness & arranging this matter. He leavees Saturday [for one C.P. lines]
