Abstract

Financial situation has improved and no longer thinks he needs a loan from TAE; "I believe now I have money enough for Mrs. Barker and myself to go on and spend the summer pleasantly." Will do everything he can for TAE in Paris; "proving to the scientific men there the high characgter of your inventions. If there are any special points you wish me to make" let me know. Hoped he could have lighted his house before the Paris Congress but understands that TAE busy getting ready for exhibit. "I hear our friend Robinson is talking of casting his lot with you. I should be glad if he could make himself so useful to you as to secure for himself a permanent position." ANNOTE WITH LB008294
