[D8238N], Letter from Otto A Moses to Thomas Alva Edison, January 27th, 1882

Editor's Notes

[from Paris] Call your attention to two matters: Was offered sale of US and European pats of Dion's[?] continuous flat spiral. Think this would be good for regulator field magnets, as the spiral could be turned off and more or less of it be thrown in circuit. Dion says he has perfect insulation, has been testing it at Siemens and Fontaine's; think you should get US patent. Also look into new sulphide of carbon engine just put up in NY; said to work well and economize 2/3 of fuel. Its inventor is here to sue Puskas for damage in allowing patents to lapse. Much arc lighting proposed for Paris but incandescent lighting much in favor and think you system will be introduced as fast as material can be sent. Strasbourg contract will get things rolling, "although the Spanish affair may be set back ia little by the financial and political disturbances." Plan to leave for home mid-Feb unless you cable other instructions.
