Abstract

TAE has begun a suit in equity in which he demands $250,000 from Gilliland and Tomlinson. TAE estimates that the phonograph patent he sold for $500,000 was actually worth $1 million. Gilliland is alleged to have made $250,000 in the deal and also took Tomlinson under his arm. TAE was never noted for his business abilities. Jay Gould believes the Phonograph could be worth $20 million at present.
