Interestingly enough...should some labourer, asked to move around
some of the furniture at the Edison National Historic Site, discover
a battered sheet of metial which, when closely examined, proves to
play back a male voice reciting "Mary Had a Little Lamb"...

It might take a court battle to legally decide that the artifact
was officially Mr. Edison's first sound recording, and as such
part of the archives under the control of the National Park Service,
before we would be able to hear it!
