[D8227W], Letter from Charles Lorenzo Clarke to Thomas Alva Edison, June 17th, 1882

Editor's Notes

"In reference to small matters in construction of dynamos, such as fiber rings, slot in brush-holder &c I inform you of these matters as they come up so that you will know the results of omission and commission and complaints made, such that you may make such modifications as seem best." Working w/ Moore on dwgs. Wrt supt., wants a competent mechanical man, level headed and middle-aged. "Dean, as is his usual way with most every one, does not speak well of Lavery, but says he is a first class talker. I like his appearance however, and he is a first class mechanic." Has someone in mind for supt and wants to bring him in to meet w/ TAE and Eaton. So either Lavery or Casho would be good choices. Bergmann, not Clarke, is who suggested making meter parts of zinc b/c cheaper th brass. Says Porter is "entirely wrong" about needing new cylinders; problem is the piston. "The minor equipment of Central Station is being pushed rapidly." xxx poss. select dh 17jan03 xxx
