Abstract

From the orders that we have received from the various companies, we find it is necessary to call the attention of each company to the fact that the supplies for the machines are packed as follows:- ### Graphophone Cylinders, 15 in a box, 20 boxes in a crate. The ([-]) and 2" cylinders are packed in boxes of 15 each, that is to say fifteen 4" and fifteen 2" with a mandrel to use with same, which will be found in one of the corner cylinders of each box. These like the rest are packed in crates of 20 boxes each. ### Phonogram blanks are packed in barrels of 150 each. Whenever they are ordered in less quantity than that, we will have to charge you for the packing and boxing, the same as we are charged by the Edison Phonograph Works. ### In ordering batteries you should distinctly say what is wanted whether it is the Edison, No.1, 100 hour battery, or the old style Edison bi-cromate battery, or Pumpelly Storage Battery, then there will be no confusion and we will be able to fill your orders intelligently. ### In ordering horns and other things, please refer to our price list for terms and styles, so that we will understand what you want. We sometimes get confused by parties ordering 30 inch horns when they mean 26, or 12 inch horns when they mean 14. ### A little care in this ordering business and by being careful to make out your orders on a separate sheet of paper and not embody them in your letters, will very much incilitate our getting your goods sent to you quickly and you getting what you want.
