[D8135H], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Theodore Puskas, May 31st, 1881

Abstract

TAE to get 72x72 ft space, 2 rooms off the staircase "to be filled with a most elaborate collection of his inventions." Will use 1600 lights to illuminate this area along with another of 72x30. Please confer with Breguet to secure all this space; also select "six elegant lamp-posts, to be placed in front of the Palais de l'Industrie..As it will produce, perhaps, the first impression of our capacity for lighting--and as first impressions are most lasting--you see how much will devolve upon you..I think eveyr thing has wonderfully improved during my absence. The electric light is absolutely perfect. The lamps in our offices have been burning since they started, five and one half hours a night, for two months and not one lamp has broken."
