[D8137ZBW], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Thomas Logan, July 15th, 1881

Editor's Notes

Dear Sir, When you have finished the Lamp Co work that you are actually engaged on & Batchelor's work (with the exception of the new non magnetic Dynamo) please discharge every man in the Laboratory and the Machine Shop except Alfred Swanson who will [rest?] as night watchman. Of course Dr Haid, Randolph & the ones working for Mr Claudius will remain. I will procure a four horsepower Baxter Engine and have it sent to Menlo Park. You can disconnect the heavy piece of shafting from the engine & run the shop with the Baxter engine. You will remain, as you are, doing whatever [work?] Dr Haid, Hughes & Claudius may desire. Please ship to the Edison Machine Works 104 Goerck St New York immediately the large lathe the large drill press & large planer, also the various parts of the new non magnetic dynamo which I propose having finished at Goerck St.
