March 6, 1891.
Mr. J. H. Block,
Moscow, Russia.
My dear Sir:-
On my return to the Laboratory a few days ago after an absence of several weeks I find your letter under date 7th of January, and I have read the same with much interest.
In compliance with your request I enclose herewith a rough sketch of a funnel similar to those with which we record music in the Laboratory. These are made of tin and the results obtained are excellent.
Your letter dated 13th February, enclosing communication from Mr. T. Glushanowski, has also reached me. I regret very much my inability to gratify Mr. Glushanowski’s desire and supply him with a phonograph, but as you know, the instrument in Europe is controlled by the Edison United Phonograph Company, and I am prohibited by contract from furnishing phonographs for use in territory which that Company controls. I have forwarded the letter to the office of the United Company in New York, and am advising Mr. Glushankowski of my action in the matter by this mail.
Yours very truly,
(Signed Thomas A. Edison)
