Editor's Notes

I am as yet without acknowledgement of my letters of the 19th and 23rd of Sept. and shall be glad to have you look some through and reply to such points as are required by me for transmission to Japan by next outward mail.### Regarding the three phonos, for the officials of China, Japan and Korea I would say that the wax cylinders have given my firm so much trouble, whereby they have been unable to effect any sales as yet, that it would be better to await a final report on the last package of new cylinders sent out, when, if satisfactory, I shall want the three instruments got ready for prompt shipment. I will let you know about this letter.### Phonographic Pamphlet. When may I expect copies of some? I forwarded to Japan and China were marked in the ordinary way net. Please say whether this implies that they are the lowest net prices as to my firm as agents of the phonograph, or are they subject to our commission, and what? The 6 new batteries mentioned in my letter of the 19th Sept. I would like for ready for shipt. From the works not later than Tuesday next, the 8th inst., when they will be forwarded from Pier 5 N. R. via the O.P.R’y in time for the weights measts. Of some and the lowest net cost to my firm. Please mark them Frazar & Co., Yokohama, E.P.W. Nos. 1 up, N.Y.O. & W.te Prescott, c/o C.P. R’y. Kindly write me whether I can depend on the 6 packages being ready for shipment as above.
