They must either have isolated plants or he supplied by a separate station. I am making good progress am including a territory that could use a 3000 light plant. # Mr. Stuart gave me the following towns to canvass: Chillicothe, Jamesville, Lancaster, Circleville and Sandusly # Alll of the towns our agent will visit this winter.

I woild like a leter of introduction of name of asn intersted party in New Orleans. The 25light plant is up, and the Engine has been tested everything is ready to start Saturday night # I do think we will get a company there this winter. Brush Swan and Thompson and Hauston agents have been here for ten days and had really made a beginning when Story and I appeared on the scene and dispelled all illusion of 50% on an Arc plant or storage battery plant. # If the installation co has not done much buisness in Ohio it has deciedly checked buisiness of other comapanies. # There has been no Arc light instation on Ohio since the there are in Springfield and I learn from good authority that the Springfield people refuse to enlarge their plant as the Thompson and Hunton people anticipated.
