Abstract

"I have received your letter of 18th ultime, in regard to proposed presentation, to the Sultan of Turkey. I understand that I am to provide the phonographs, which will be forwarded to you at London; you are to take charge of them from there and send an expert with them to Constantinople, where the presentation would be made; the expenses attendant upon forwarding the phonographs and expert to Constantinople and making the presentation, to be divided equally between yourself and the University of Pennsylvania; the phonographs to be presented in the names of myself, the University of Pennsylvania and Col. George E. Gouraud. This arrangement is entirely satisfactory to me, and when I hear from Prof. Barker, to whom I have written, communicating your proposal, I will write you further regarding the matter." Yours truly, [signed] TAE
