Abstract

"Your favor of the 8th to hand this morning with enclosure. Robinson has signed the assent to my making the supplemental agreement, and I will forward it to-night to Mr. Whitney in Pittsburg. I think he is at home; at any rate he is never away at this time of the year more than a day or two at a time, so there will not be much delay in getting the document back.# The form of agreement in regard to the option, which you say you send, was not enclosed. In regard to the announcement to be made to the public, if you consult my wishes in the matter, I would simply say that I was given permission to handle the Phonograph in connection with the Graphophone; that both instruments will be placed on the market, and the public will be allowed to make their own selection; that all differences between the two companies have been amicably arranged, and no litigation would ensue. I seems to me that it would be very unwise to make any illusion to the terms of the supplemental agreement. I expect to go out of town to-morrow night, to be gone until Tuesday morning; by that time the agreement will certainly be back from Pittsburg, when I will forward it to you."
