[D8032W], Letter from W H Patton to Thomas Alva Edison, August 20th, 1880

Editor's Notes

Yours of 7th [9th?] recd. Encloses mine sketch [not found]. Design & operating specs of pumps and hoists. Pumping is constant, but would dynamo be OK on intermittent hoisting? Must start/stop hoists slowly & smoothly. Think elect would be OK if you can overcome these difficulties. Proposes trial of 100hp generator. Please send sketch of device for reducing speed at motors.
