"Moses tells me that his arc lamp will run in multiple arc provided two lamps are put in series. That would not be a very serious objection practically." TAE: "He has no lamp as yet. The one he shows [fluctuates?] fearfully & uses the Brush ring" Copies memo from Howell in Canada. Mr. Card "is not a successful canvasser..It is said that a good many people avoid him all they can."
