[D8963AAI], Letter from Pacific Phonograph Co, Louis Glass to Alfred Ord Tate, March 26th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"A man named Le Count came into our office today with a Graphophone cylinder which he wished to have read to him. He has just returned from New York and seems to be well acquainted with many of the Phonograph-Graphophone people there. He told me that he was informed at the office of the Metropolitan Company on Fifth Avenue, that the New York Company would receive about 100 machines within two weeks, but that none would be forwarded to the Pacific Coast for probably ninety days. ### Our people are very much dissatisfied here at the delay in receiving machines and we have so little information ourselves that we cannot make our explanation satisfactory. But we think that we are entitled to our share of machines as soon as any other agency, and we hope you will do what you can in Mr. Edison’s establishment to see what we are fairly dealt with. We sent Mr. Lippincott an order for 500 machines on January 30th–one half of which were to be treadle. Have the kindness to let us know is he has filed this order with you, or if such is his custom. Please write me also what are the probabilities for shipment and whether the price of the cylinder has been determined. With kind regard, I am,"
