Title

[D8137B], Letter from Charles Peters Mott to Thomas Alva Edison, February 22nd, 1881

Editor's Notes

Daily report. New clamp (5 carbons secured in wire as for plating but secured in bulb without further manipulation--appear to stand as well as screw clamps); deposit on paper (Haid put mould of paper carbons thru gas furnace--come out hard but deposition uneven); plumbago (Upton lamp tests); engines (Porter's man here & got counterbalance placed in position. Hampson engine can't be run bolted to floor--too much shake); motor meter (describes Upton's tests); absentees (Hammer & Howell, "all men stopped from working in the shop this evening and puzzled to know why they are not allowed to work").
