Abstract

"PHONOGRAPH ### I have consulted with Mr. Edison and Mr. Insull, of the Edison Machine Works, in regard to securing the services of a young man to act as your expert in China and Japan, in connection with the phonograph. The latter assures me that he will have no difficulty in selecting from among his numerous employees in Schenectady, just the kind of man you want, and he is already taking steps to do so. I regret to say, however, that Mr. Edison will not be able to instruct a man in time to send him by the 10th of February to China. This delay is unavoidable owing to the condition of work in our factory, and we must do the best we can under the circumstances. You can rest assured that there will be no more delay than is absolutely necessary. ### GERMAN QUOTATIONS We are taking this matter up very earnestly and will send you copies of our further correspondence in the course of a few days. ### I have experienced considerable difficulty in finding all the original papers." Yours very truly, AO Tate
