An Edison phonograph wax cylinder with the recording of Kaiser Wilhelm's notorious Hun Speech during the Boxer Rebellion has been found recently. The speech was made at Bremerhaven on July 27, 1900 as several German transport ships were ready to bring 2000 troops to China. The recording is in astonishly good condition but it's still unclear whether it's really Willy II speaking.
