Editor's Notes

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.
Thomas Edison accuses late legal adviser John C. Tomlinson and electrician/inventor Ezra T. Gilliland of cheating him out of $250,000 in the sale of the phonograph; he sues for the sum
