[D8226ZAI], Letter from Sherburne Blake Eaton to Thomas Alva Edison, June 29th, 1882

Editor's Notes

Re Montreal Lamp Factory - Howell's weekly report shows that they ran off 100 lamps last week.Eaton goes Montreal tonight to fix Hearle-Swinyard matter; will return tomorrow night. Clarke has inspected Moses' lamp and says idea is good "but fears that Moses in perfecting the lamp will load it down with details to such an extent that he will ruin it." Another Frenchman turned up from Batchelor; Clarke says that all the draftsmen on top floor now occupied with dwgs for "the English gentleman now here from England being instructed at Goerck St. Your suggestion about the rate of pay to be charged for the services of Clarke and others seems to me to be just right." Nothing here wrt Brackett & Young arrangement; ask Insull if he has. "Pursuant to yoru suggestion I have written Mott accepting his resignation and telling him we do not wish to buy any of his inventions." New lamp, Gulcher. Eaton objects to Shaw's Cincinnati people. Barker says that Brush is reducing workforce and president is quietly selling off all his stock, as business has declined. Shall we publish in Science? Michels wants a piece from us.
