February 28, 1893.
Jesse Seligman, Esq.,
Mills Building, New York.
My dear Mr. Seligman,-
I am in receipt of a personal letter from Mr. J. Lewis Young, which explains the cablegram which I showed you on Saturday. Mr. Young was, as you know, in the employ of Col. Gouraud for a long time. He obtained a phonograph for his own amusement, and it appears that he has recently been served with a writ at the hands of the Edison-Bell Phonograph corporation for its return to them. He has entered an appearance and proposes to fight the case. I know nothing of the merits or demerits of this case, but if I might venture to offer advice would say that in view of Mr. Young's long service in the interests of the phonograph, it might be the part of good judgment to make an exception in his case, and extend to him a courtesy that it is quite proper to deny to others.
Yours very truly,
[A.O.] Tate
