Abstract

"I spoke to you the other day about our obtaining from the Machine Works, a young man with a fair knowledge of our system of electric lighting, whom we could break in here as a phonograph expert, with the view of employing him, under Messrs. Frazar & Co., in China and Japan. Mr. Edison approves of this arrangement, and says that he will be ready for such a man in about three weeks' time. Meanwhile, will you kindly cast about among your employees and select the kind of man you think we will require. Mr. Frazar says that he does not care to employ a man who is married. I should think that some young fellow, about twenty-two years old, with good address and good habits, is what we want." Yours very truly, A.O. Tate
