Mr. Cooke at Davenport gave sufficient idea of canvas method. Have nearly 12 more towns to warrant examination after those named by you are concluded. Probably want a district in Chicago when your engineer finishes Racine. A United State Co. client bought an Edison plant in Des Moines. Expect another sale there at the expense of Maxim Light. In time the public will learn [US Co.] can neither do Isolated or Central Station business. Then asks for particulars of construction even though early contracts will go to Edison. TAE: "Explain to Bliss we can give him no rule for calculationg 3 wires The Houses are wired on 2 wire system Menlo Park determined the three wire"
