Dear Sir:-
We enclose you herewith, copy of a letter received from the Columbia Phonograph Company, giving the names of Physicians who use the Phonograph in reference to the cure of deafness.
We send this to you for your information.
Yours very truly,
The North American Phonograph Company
Thomas Butler
TREASURER Baltimore, April 16th, 1892.
North American Phonograph Company
44 Broad St., City
In reply to your request for names of physicians in this city using the Phonograph in the treatment of deafness, the following is the list: Dr. H.F. Garey, Dr. Eldridge Price, Dr. Henry Chandlee and the Southern Homeopathic Medical College.
We are informed that in discoveries of this kind it is customary for the profession to wait until the matter has been officially presented to the National body before adopting it in their practice; but in this case the results have been so remarkable that not only the above mentioned have taken it up but physicians from other cities, including New York, Chicago, and Cleveland, have visited the College here, investigated the subject, and returned with the expressed intention of commencing the use of the Phonograph at once.
At the meeting of the American Institute of Homeopathy (the National body) which takes place in Washington in June 1892, a paper will be read giving all details of the treatment
Yours very truly,
Signed, Columbia Phonograph Company
