Abstract

Wants TAE to clarify ratios of heat to light given off by gas and electric lighting. Re Bennett's yacht: Bennett unhappy with it except for lighting plant. This news was from Moore, who also said that Smithsonian and Govt Printing Office may both adopt TAE light. "Hazard, President of the Gramme Company, says the Swan Company will light up the Madison Square Theatre or some other conspicuous building right away. He wants to know if we will unite with the United States Company without prejudice to our controversy with them, to crush out the Swan Company." Insull and Eaton think "you sould have a room upstairs to be always kept for your use. I hope you will fit it up with some little conveniences and comforts and thus be induced to stay with us longer when you are in town than you otherwise might." Also misc news abt other iso installations.
