Abstract

[selectable? ] "In regard to the [coming?] Paris Exposition, I have made arrangements for an exhibition of all my inventions, which are to be placed in the American section. A very large space has been set apart for my use, and for the use of the Machine Works and the Lamp Company. The exhibit which is to be made will, I believe, be the most complete of any yet attempted. These arrangements, of course, include the phonograph. I will send instruments from here for the purpose and attend to all the details in connection therewith. I have placed Mr. W.J. Hammer in charge [inserted by hand: "of the whole exhibit"] and he is actively engaged in getting together everything which we propose showing. I mention this matter to you in case you may have been considering an exhibit of the phonograph yourself, which, of course, is not necessary." [signed by A. O. Tate, with heavily smudged postscript by Tate]
