Title

[D8316AWC], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Frank Julian Sprague, September 21st, 1883

Editor's Notes

[addressed to Brockton MA] Your long letters of 16 & 20th rcd. Regarding the extra tubes to be laid by Garrison instead of poles, have instructed Jenks to lay 2800 feet; have also ordered from Kruesi 30 lengths of two wire service tubes. Your letter of 20th makes preference for 3-wire tubes, but too late to cancel 2-wire order. Don't understand why one of your letters refers to 2-wire, the other to 3-wire. Connections devised by Johnson have been ordered from Bergmann & will be sent ASAP; also safety catches, etc. Am writing to Mr Lord regarding equipment for Lawrence; contract calls for 2 400-light machines, and later 2 more. Your report of wiring corrorborates what I've heard elsewhere.
