Abstract

My Dear UH#In cleaning up my Desk I find enclosed which I see you requested returned--#I have a bit of late information on the Phonograph. A mutual friend in discussing Edisons disgruntled condition of late says it no doubt arises from his disappointment in the outcome of the Phonograph. I inquired what he meant and He said "Why don’t you know they have at last recognized that their Phonograph is a failure." I said no I had not heard of it-- Well He says "It is a fact at all events"-- This has a basis of truth no doubt But I believe they will continue at it until they do get it.
