[D8026ZCM], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Ernst Biedermann, August 17th, 1880

Editor's Notes

Nice summary of progress and problems of commercial introduction of light. Couldn't possibly do it yourself in Geneva. Building lamp factory here; spent many $1000 developing automatic apparatus, training workers. "Everybody must depend for their lamps for a while on our first factory." Dynamo is unique design, worked by special engine making 600 strokes/min; Phila inventor spent 20 yrs perfecting it & training workers. All machinery must be sent from here with expert to superintend installation. "We are perfecting our arrangements here for the manufacture of all apparatus on a large scale and will keep you posted..."
