Abstract

"I have received a letter from Col. Gouraud, in regard to the proposed presentation to the Sultan of Turkey, and the Grand Vizier of Turkey. The proposition which Col. Gouraud makes is this: I provide the phonographs, at my own expense, and send them to England; Col. Gouraud will forward them from there, with an expert, to Constantinope, where I presume the presentation would be made; the phonographs to be presented in the names of myself, the University of Pennsylvania and Col. Gouraud; all expenses in connection with forwarding the phonographs from London to Turkey, expert's expenses &c. in connection with the presentation, to be divided equally between Col. Gouraud and the University of Pennsylvania. Does this meet with your approval? If so, kindly advise me, so that I may take immediate [unclear] to get the machines ready." Yours very truly, [signed] TAE
