[D8238ZAT], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Thomas Alva Edison, April 11th, 1882

Editor's Notes

Societie Industrial & Commeciale Edison sent you draft on 5 April, please put to their credit & keep their account separate. Their acct will include everything Bergmann makes for them, also instruments & models, rubber corks, etc. Have had "infernal" trouble with the B machines you sent to Hambourg; 5 of their armatures still there, others went to Russia but agent swears he won't pay for them. Tried to convince our people we could use them anywhere operating more than 60 lights but they're very peculiar people and when they get something other than what they ordered it's difficult to talk them into having it. Sent tubing from Exhibition to EHJ, instead of the syndicate; is this OK? Our people are afraid of the prices of the big machines; EHJ quoted $1000 but you told them $1200 for 200 light machines; what's reason for large increase? PS [by Batch] Force arrived day before yesterday and will come on fast as possible.] [Insull shorthand marg]
