Abstract

Update of progress. "I am rapidly reducing it to a science." "I don't think Erie has been properly worked up. I have met leading merchants who do not know the difference bet an incandescent & an arc light & who think the Stearns & Co's plant a Brush plant." Bank cashier wants to install 60 light plant in a tower by the harbor. "He has never heard of the Edison Agent. I have heard of several things that would lead one to suppose the matter has not been thoroughly talked up. This is confidential. The saloons generally can be reckoned on as consumers from the first." Only other initial consumer will probably be opera house.
