Abstract

"We have just tried 10 candles A lamps at 32 candles, carbons from carbon forms, and the orders went all to pieces. It is a great disappointment. We shall try some more tomorrow." "Regarding lamps for competing plants in England. I wish you would take B lamps to meet Swan with. They are profitable to manufacture and give good life." "The B lamp is larger than Swans and has a higher resistance so gives you eveyr chance in competing. The Lamp Co is under very heavy expense at present and new styles will more than take expected profits." xxx maybe select dh 24jan03
