[D7838ZEQ], Letter from Western Union, George Bartlett Prescott to Thomas Alva Edison, September 18th, 1878

Editor's Notes

Yours of the 17th received. I will hold my book back until your new matter comes to hand. Our cables are seriously troubled by induction between the wires, and what is said on one of your telephones on one wire, can be heard on all the others. Can you suggest any remedy. The matter is very serious especially for wires between here and Brooklyn. TAE marg: It may be possible to compensate in the cable house by magnetos or condensers. Focault cable with foil on the outside of each conductor might do the business. I remember Ludwig trying this about 9 years ago in old A&P office. Will talk the matter over when I see you--was in today 3 times but you were out=
