1917 J.C. Ellsworth Organ Purchase

If you check back to yesterday's post, you will see a letter from J.C. Ellsworth inquiring as to the possibility of purchasing an organ for the music room in his house, and for his own pleasure.
Following is a copy of the purchase order, received from one of my readers (ultimately the current owner of parts of the organ -- he bought the console, in particular):
The organ cost $9,500 with a credit by XY Orchestrelle, purchased June 16, 1917.
