Abstract

"I enclose herewith, a letter from Mr. W. H. Brearly, president of The Michigan Press Association. It explains itself. I have looked into the nature of the meeting here referred to, and am satisfied that it is one opportunity in a thousand for exhibiting our machine. I shall go to Grand Rapids and give the exhibition of type setting from phonograph dictation, as he requests, and would be very glad to comply with his second request if it is possible to do it. Please send me, for exhibition at this time, a variety of cylinders with musical records etc., in order that I may give a general exhibition of the machine and show its capacity in all directions.### Will you please let me know when we may expect the batteries which you are making for the phonograph? The original batteries sent out are not such that we can use them. The business men are very much opposed to the constant change of ([–)] and the general character of the battery."
