Abstract

"I beg to confirm the verbal understanding arrived at between Mr. Edison, Mr. Insull and myself, a few days since, i.e. ## That you are to make and deliver tothis Company Phonographs at the rate of 45 per day, for each working day, from this date to the first of January next. Any orders which we may send to you for shipment are to be consiered as part ofthis order, and such instruments as we do not order shipped, weill accept delivery of at the Works. The machines are to be billed to us at the rate of $45 each, plus packing and boxing. After you have delivered 3,000 instruments beginning with the phonographs originally supplied to us from your Works, a minimum reduction of $5 per instrument is to be made. Such reduction is to be increased should you find that the cost of production has been so far reduced as to enable you to increase it, and the price, for machines is to be finally adjusted in accordance with the agreement between the North American Phonograph Co and Jesse Lippincott with Edison Phonograph Works, dated August 1st 1888. This order is given with the understanding that you will at all times promptly execute our orders for cylinders and batteries necessary to fill the requisitions made on us by our sub-companies. ## We will pay you on account of this order $12.00 per week provided your invoices equal or overrun that amount; the payment for the difference for invoices for each month to be made on the 15th of the following month. ## This order is to cancel the one which we gave you on October 15th 1888.
