[LB032063], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Edison Phonograph Toy Manufacturing Co, August 8th, 1889

Editor's Notes

In accordance with your letter dated July 30th to Mr. Edison, we here sent you by express a complete doll with phonograph inside of it. We would call your attention to the fact that when these dolls are made they should be sown in such a manner that they can be taken apart, to put the phonograph inside. Also, the head should be made with a hole in the top to let out the sound. As this hole will be covered with hair it will not look unsightly. ### We are now commencing to train small voices to talk on the cylinders for these phonograph toys, and should be glad to have from you a list of all the little verses that you would be likely to want put on them. It matters a great deal just how the thing is said in the phonograph. Therefore we should like to have them before hand to get our small voices well practiced in the art. Very respectfully yours, Edison Laboratory by Chas. Batchelor
