Title

[D8232G], Letter from John F Ott to Thomas Alva Edison, January 18th, 1882

Editor's Notes

"Dipping the spiral carbons in Oil lowers their resistance and makes them black..My object in dipping them in oil, is the oil will disolve the resin and pitch that is contained in the fiber, and when inclosed in wood carbon the wood will absorb the oil with its impurities leaving pure wood to be shaved into carbon."
