Abstract

What have you promised to do for one of the leading clergymen here? He rings you into his sermon about every Sunday. The papers continue to grind the grist but I cant afford to buy all of them to foward to you. Write me the truth about what you have done in lighting by electricity &c. You know I believe in Edison but not half what the papers say. [mentions Bullwinkle, presumably not the moose, and the water telephone and an article that pleased him in Rahway Enterprise]; TAE marg: Say to Bliss Electric light is OK= I have done it & its only question of economy Puskas has sold French telephone patent for a large sum of money
