Abstract

Gouraud having the TAE photo copied by the 100s. Telephone Co board loved photo; order 15 for me to give to them. Got Batch's letter on phosphate soda, largely answering questions of EHJ's letter yesterday. Also has copy of "Wanted A Platinum Mine" Don't work Batch and Grif so hard but "as for poor Mack well- go ahead & use him up OK." Telephones talk "splendidly" Monday morning; one last wetted Thurs., the other Friday. Thin plate transmitter "don't hold out as well as the regular style." PS Bell Co got 100 Blakes; told our people to proceed at once against them; "I tell them it is carbon pure and simple and without it we have nothing to fear from the Bel Tel Coy- nor with it for that matter." Tell Batch to write his Manchester people; going down there in few weeks.
