Abstract

"I enclose herewith a letter from Mr. Reginald Gray, who is Mrs. Hemenway's attorney, inquiring about the stock which the latter holds in the Edison Phonograph Company. I saw Mr. Lippincott this morning, and he has suggested that I write Mr. Gray, stating that all the stock of the Edison Phonograph Co., excepting Mrs. Hemenway's holding, has been sold to Mr. Lippincott, and that would probably place Mr. Lippincott and Mr. Gray in correspondence with each other. Mr. Lippincott did not [unclear] altogether prepared to take up this matter at the present time with Mrs. Hemenway and negotiate for the redemption of her stock and appeared to have hoped that the matter would have been delayed until a later date- at least such is the impression that he gave me. Is there any objection to my writing the letter which he suggests, and will you kindly give me your own ideas as to how I should reply to this communication? The acknowledgement noted on Mr. Gray's letter as of 3d instant, was simply a note from my Assistant, Mr. Maguire, saying that I was not at home when the letter received here, but that I would reply be it on my return." Yours very truly, A.O. Tate
