Abstract

Sorry for not making promised visit to MP. Had looked forward to seeing you while in US but caught chill in West; still not well. Will watch progress of your light. TAE marg: "I could not make it out at all why youdidn't come. I had the boys here on the watch to let me know when you came. I have the light all right now. There are 650 burning & they are distributed over 8 miles of streets. We are making the machines for lighting New York. When you come over next time be sure and come down. Grif --I will sign it."
