[LB027605], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to George H Hartwell, January 2nd, 1889

Abstract

"In reference to your letter of 29th ultime, to Mr. Edison, the latter being in Akron, Ohio, cannot reply personally, but I think I can give you the information you want. Dr. Lugro has not invented any battery to run the phonograph. I believe that he has a battery and also a motor which the Grapho-phone people have used in connection with their machine. Mr. Edison's motor is perfect, and his new form of battery all that can be desired, and no change will be made in either of them. I cannot give you definite information as to when the phonograph will be on the market. When you come to Orange, I will be very glad to take you through the phonograph factory, and show you what we are doing there." Yours very truly, AO Tate
