Abstract

Has water on the knee & confined to house by doctor's orders. Corning Glass hasn't lived up to agreement with Holzer; have only received about 3 gross of bulbs, though 6 more on the way. Holzer went to Brooklyn & arranged for glass from firm there. It will go with Corning glass if of same quality. These are only 2 places to get the glass we need. Stopped for today & tomorrow in order to fix engine foundations. Started Bradley on the sockets. Will improve on wood. He's designing mould for your idea of Plaster Paris. See from curve sheets that lamps that last longest are low volts, shoing they could have been high on the pumps.
