[LB027854], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Everett Frazar, January 21st, 1889

Abstract

"In reference to your letter of 17th instant, we will make arrangements to obtain phonograms from the Japanese Minister and others in Washington before your expert goes to China. In all probability we will have to send some one to Washington for the purpose, as there is no one there to whom we could entrust the work. ### In regard to furnishing you with an expert, I have discussed the matter with Mr. Edison, and he says that he does not think you can obtain the class of man you should have for a less sum than One Hundred dollars per month and his expenses. Of course a great deal depends upon the man who is to exhibit these phonographs for you, and it will be much better to pay a little more and obtain a thoroughly competent expert, than to put in service a man of inferior qualifications at a small salary." Yours truly, AO Tate
