Abstract

Yours recd. Have never published papers that amount to anything as my work has been mostly practical. "It is true that I have introduced the word `pressure of electricity'" instead of emforce. Has theory of electricity; all his results have been obtained according to it: current and voltage inversely proportional for given work. Explains by analogy of belted shafts. Have never used aether in theories; explain transfer of energy of all forms as vibrations of matter; eg battery cell.
