Title

[D8123I], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Thomas Alva Edison, February 7th, 1881

Editor's Notes

Talked with Lawson about experiments. He has been "trying the method of platings on the whole carbon and then plating the copper on the carbon off" but poor success. Has also been trying solvents for sealing wax. Most of his time spent making supports and getting ready to plate 200 a day to take place the old style clamps & keep us running. He will try all the experiments you mentioned. "Could not the world `Electric' be droped ferom the title of this company? I find that it is hard for people not to follow it with `light' evening when meaning `lamp'. It is distinctive enough without for you have never made other lamps."
