Title

[D8020ZHS], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Sven Otto Pettersson, October 12th, 1880

Editor's Notes

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.
