** Transcript of Arthur Sullivan's message to Edison upon introduction to the phonograph: 
" . . . For myself, I can only say that I am astonished and somewhat terrified at the results of this evening's experiment --
astonished at the wonderful power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous and bad music may be put on record forever.
But all the same, I think it is the most wonderful thing that I have ever experienced,
and I congratulate you with all my heart on this wonderful discovery."
