[X045C], Letter from Edison Phonograph Co, Ezra Torrance Gilliland to Samuel Langhorne Clemens, June 6th, 1888

Abstract

"Dear Sir: I regret very much that illness and pressure of important duties have prevented me from acknowledging more promptly your favor of May 24th. ## Changes in the form of the phonograph have delayed the issue of the machines from the factory and none have as yet been delivered for use. You will receive an instrument from among the first ones that are put out, which I hope will be within the next few weeks, at the furthest. ## Our efforts todeliver it promptly will not be diminished by the knowledge of the fact that one of 'Mark Twain's' books is dependent upon it."
