Abstract

Letter head of the TAE Company for Isolated Lighting of Virginia agency crossed out and written from Louisville. Noting the $1.35 expense to Sunbury to Williams Port, and requesting a check to reimbursem the expenses. Two more dynamos were run in the Corliss circuit increasing the load to twenty one hundred, placing some three hundred in the Art Gallery which will open for the first time that evening. One of the A & S engines arrived that evening. The pressure indicators vary considerably and an adjustment of ten degrees is necessary. 375 lamps on one dynamo is a very heavy load, more attention is needed for the brushes. The rest of the machines are running nicely. We use the babbit sleaves entirely.
