May 18, 1893.
Messrs. Dyer & Seely,
No. 36 Wall St.,
New York.
Dear Sirs:-
Mr. Edison has received your letter of 10th instant, informing him that the claim contained in his application No. 900, on placing the phonograph directly under the shaft, has been rejected by the Patent Office. In reply he directs me to inform you that he advantages obtained by this arrangement of the motor are as follows:


1. It gives long driving belt.
2. It prevents wobbling, as old phonograph overhung.
3. It is more solid and compact.
4. Longer belt prevents transmission of motor vibrations to phonograph shaft, etc., etc.


Yours truly,
[A. O. Tate]
Private Secretary.
