Everett Frazar, Esq.,
#124 Water Street, New York City.
Dear Sir:-
Referring to your telephone inquiry of yesterday concerning the 3,000 blank cylinders and 25 rubber shells which were forwarded to you from the Laboratory, via Colt’s Express, on the 17th of September last, the shipment consisting of 13 bbls and one box (the latter containing the shells): for information regarding the use of the rubber shells mentioned in the foregoing, I would refer you to my letter of 10th instant, wherein their use is explained fully and explicitly. A rubber shell is to be placed upon the brass mandril of each phonograph, when the cylinders, which are of the latest pattern and a little larger than the older style, will be found to fit perfectly. I am positive that 25 shells were included in the above shipment, having investigated the matter and satisfied myself of the [fact?], and these with the 25 sent to you recently, are more than ample for the number of phonographs which you have in China. The shells never wear out and each machine only requires one.
Yours truly,
A. O. Tate
