Title

[D8239ZAC], Letter from Edward Hibberd Johnson to Thomas Alva Edison, February 25th, 1882

Editor's Notes

Power of atty and one expected to arrive are likely inadequate for intended purpose. Assignment can only be made in colonies; will therefore have to make outright sale of pats and need broader power in order to delegate power to persons in the colonies to complete transaction. Gouraud now taking out pats Cape of Good Hope. After consulting with Handford, now taking out broad Lamp patent--cabled you for authorization to sign your name to appns. Francis and Mac arrived OK; dynamo en route to London by rail and will be in full operation in fortnight. Sorry the 100cp lamps didn't arrive yet (for streetlamps). Tried using 2 16cp lamps; this gave twice the light there was previously but still inadequate. So cabled you today for 300 30cp for our main circuit. Leaving now to attend formal opening of electric exhibt at Crystal Palace. [Insull shorthand marg]
