Abstract

"We are looking about for some one to go to China and Japan with the phonograph. Messrs. Frazar & Co., of New York, are Mr. Edison's agents for the phonograph in these countries, and also represent the Edison electric light there. We want to get for Messrs. Frazar & Co. a young man who understands electric lighting in general, wiring, dynamos &c., whom we can break in as a phonograph expert, who, when he reaches China will be a good all round man to render assistance in connection with the various electrical interests which Messrs. Frazar & Co. represent. Your name was mentioned in this connection, and I have thought it worth while to write you and see if you desire to cease the opportunity of handling some foreign business. The salary would be a thousand to twelve hundred dollars a year and expenses." Yours very truly, AO Tate
