[D8238ZFH], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Thomas Alva Edison, 1882

Editor's Notes

"Hopkinson has allowed to Bailey that his meter will not register at all for 1 lamp. Hopkinson has patents in Germany for 3 wire system before us, so I have written to Handford asking copies of the distribution patent you sent there to get round them. I wired you sto stop the galvanometers at Bergmans as I cannot take them just at present." PS "I cabled you for models to Berlin because I assure you unless we can promise Siemens something to manufacture from we shall go to pieces altogether. Of course they know that we have had 500 lamps from the H and they are quite satisfied to take that & in fact further delay will assure you 'bust' us in that direction."
