[D8236H], Letter from Frederic Brice Esler to Thomas Alva Edison, May 5th, 1882

Editor's Notes

"Mr E. Biedermann informs me you have had in use for several months the Bertoud Borel underground cable represented by him and owned by the U.S. Underground Cable Company. There are several companies organized in this City to lay underground wires all of them claiming more or less merit. Experiments have been made here with the Bertoud Borel cable and have resulted satisfactorliy, but the question of durability of the insulation etc. can only be determined to the satisfaction of the experimenters by time or the opinion of a competent judge who has practically tested it for a long time." Asks TAE for his opinion of this cable.
