March 19, 1892.
Dr. J. Mount Bleyer,
No. 118 East 16th Street,
New York City.
Dear Sir:-
Your letter of 17th instant, asking for photographs of the phonograph, to illustrate an article on that instrument which you have written and which is to be incorporated in a presentation volume to be given to Prof. Thierch, of the Leipzig University, was received yesterday by Mr. Edison, who will be very glad to comply with your request. He has given instructions to his Photographer to prepare several pictures of the phonograph. These will be gotten out at the earliest practicable moment, after which they will be forwarded to you without delay. We hope to be able to send them to you early next week, which I trust will be satisfactory. I am sending to you by this mail, under separate cover, a photograph and a steel plate engraving of Mr. Edison, the only pictures of him which we have at the Laboratory. A copy of the photograph from which the engraving was made can be obtained from Palk, #949 Broadway, New York.
Yours truly,
A. O. Tate
Private Sec’y.
