Title

[D8106E], Letter from Cornelius Dennehy to Thomas Alva Edison, April 26th, 1881

Editor's Notes

Asks Edison to consider use of compressed air to provide "perpetual" motion (or at least conservation of energy) in locomotion. PS states "I need hardly point out that the first filling of the air motor should come from some exterior source," followed by what looks like shorthand that apparently comes from Menlo Park but I am not sure if it is TAE or not
