Mr. W.E. Gilmore,
V-Prest & Gen. Mgr.,
Edison Mfg. Co.,
Orange, N.J.
Dear Sir:-
Referring to your letter of the 11th inst. in reference to the Colorado Midland Phonoplex, as I wrote you before, the only way this trouble could be overcome was by putting in repeaters at Colorado Springs.
This did remove the trouble and the wire worked O.K. when I left Denver. The railroad operator objected to the repeaters on account of the non-attention which he clarified was sure to occur. I went to Mr. Brooks, the Assistant Superintendent of the Western Union, and explained the situation to him; he assured me that every attention would be given the repeaters. I presume however that the railroad operator fully made up his mind to find fault.
Every object was made to straighten the matter out the best way possible, but it seems that we could not satisfy the railroad people.
Very respectfully
W.S. Logue
