Batchelor is inexperienced--first rate in his place, but of slight importance in the field to which I refer. Moses, whose mind is most fruitful, is, according to Bailey's ideas not sound, and Bailey has taken a great dislike to him, while the state of things between him and Batchelor is such as to rob Moses of most of his usefulness." Big dynamo started on Friday night perfectly. poss select: end of expo; personalities and relns of TAE associates; beginning of dealings with Swan in England; stuff on French company. dh 3oct02
