Editor's Notes

Dr. Ernest Hagen has been appointed by the municipal authories of Berlin to visit, inspect and report upon the problem of Incandescent lighting as solved by you in America. ## The municpality owns and controls the gas of Berlin and they are at present very much interested in the present state of the Incandescent Light as you may well judge Dr Hagen's visit will have no slight bearing upon future relations between the Deutsche Edison Gesellschaft and this powervul organization, I know he will receive ebery attention and courtesy from the Edison people in New York and as he comes highly recommended by Prof. Helmholz Dr Siemens & others & brings also an official introduction from our Co it is scarcely necessary for me to write as well but Mr Rathenau has requested me to pen yourself and Major Eaton a few lines. ## Mr Rathenau gave me recently your last letter In which you request that he will keep you informed upon the progress and general state of the company's affairs from time to time and he has requested me to undertake this responsibility and I shall at an early date write you a letter in full relative to the present state, and future profits and will endeavor to keep you well inormed from here, with very sincere regards, I remain Yors respectfully, WBJ Hammer Chief Engineer D.E.G.
