Abstract

Regarding cables confirmed elsewhere about prices for fibers. Upton agreed to give you lower price than originally quoted, after which I cabled you. Regarding drawings of 25 and 50 light machines, have made the tests but don't have the models for another week or two, then will immy send drawings. Drawings of 100 and 400 light machines can go Tuesday I think. "The changes at the Machine Works have caused some delay in getting out these things, which you must accept as our apology for not sending them to you earlier." Tested 300 light machine yesterday; gave 200 amps at 112 volts @ 1100 rpm. Has one pair of cores; will sell for approx $1,000. Cabled for your proxy for 24 Sept mtg of EELCo to increase stock to $1,080,000.
