Title

[D8361ZDO], Letter from Frank H McCormick to Thomas Alva Edison, November 5th, 1883

Editor's Notes

rec yours about lamp breakage, and sent it with a similar one from Hastings to Mr Marr, who denied the charges against him concerning the breakage (apparently accused of running lamps too high). Now that we're running low, there are lots of complaints; some customers using gas with the light. Please send someone competent to examine the matter. Extensive TAE marg: "An expert from the lamp factory coming= I suspect that your local man has cut some persons by running service from the feeder instead of the main. If the meter man has gumption he would ascertain at what particular place this breakage occurred & then find reason. These same lamps are at Shamokin Brockton & Roselle & gave 800 hours. We will soon find compel(?). The lamp factory [-----] is that if prove it they will last 600 hours."
