Abstract

Yours of [26 Sept?] to hand -- 100 light drawings to hand but the most important part is the size and the amount of wire on armature as you say you change from 2 coils and I Think I shall change the 120 light. The English com is asking about prices here for lamps. I have already tried to send some there. With the price you have given 16 and 8 you will hold the market. # I have done many experiments learned that the long magnet is not worth a damn!! # I am making an estimate for a station here; got 24000 light 5 hours a day. Discusses the varying amount of lamps and amperes; would like to know TAEs thoughts. TAE MARG AT END: "Send this to Sprague to answer-- Write Batch that if he will send a canvass shewing maximum lights we will agree to send him determination accurately in 3 days after its arrival"
