[LB028912], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to George Edward Gouraud, April 4th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"I have confirmed elsewhere my cablegram to you of to-day's date, to the effect that I am sending on Saturday next, 6th instant, new spectacles, receivers and transmitters for two phonographs by Contanseau's Express, addressed to yourself, c/o French Observatoire, Meudon, France. ### I have to-day cabled Mr. Hammer, instructing him to furnish you with two (2) phonographs, to which you can attach the new spectacles and other appliances above referred to, and I am mailing Hamilton, in care of yourself, at the same address Meuden, full instructions in regard to the operation of this new equipment. A copy of these instructions will at the same time be sent to Mr. Hammer, whom I have requested to render you personal assistance at your lecture before the French Institute. Mr. Hammer is familiar, I think, with the operation of this improved spectacle, and will, I am sure, do all he can for you," Yours very truly, [signed] TAE [Marginalia TAE: "Contanseau assures me that improved spectacles &c. will be rec'd. at Meuden in ample time for your lecture."]
