Abstract

"Very many thanks for your letter of 3rd inst. ### I have very little hope of being able to read the visible impressions made upon the phonogram as the cavity of the mouth, the teeth &c alters them and makes a different impression for each person so that the same words spoken by different people bear no resemblance on the phonogram." Yours very truly, [signed] TAE
