Notes c110100:

"The 'Burdett Organ' is now exhibited for the first time at a world's fair, it must be judged now, therefore, by its merits-- not medals. The several styles now on exhibition were wholly originated at the Burdett Organ Works, Erie, Penn., no outside help being needed nor resorted to, either in designing or making them. Over thirty thousand Burdett Organs have been already made to meet the public demand; and the list of purchasers and users embraces the names of the best musicians and musical judges of our time. Our centennial motto is a fair field and no favor. The Burdett Organ Co.(Limited) Erie, Penn. R. Burdett, Ch'n B'd of Managers. P. Metcalf, Treasurer. C.C. Converse, Sec'y and Business Manager. B.O. Church, Superintendent." -- Verso of card.
