Title

[D8416BMO], Letter from Samuel Insull to Harry Mather Doubleday, May 1st, 1884

Editor's Notes

Insull reply to Doubleday of 29th D8457ZAT; "the difference in lamp breakage between the blue and red side of the Shamokin system is a very bad giveaway on the engineer." Pass the word to local people. The engineer's not doing his job of attending to the automatic regulator. "The use of the automatic regulator in a central station system is very dangerous. Some time or other something will go wrong with that regulator, and in an instant the Shamokin Co.will loose allthe lamps. This is the main reason we have been objecting to the use of these regulators, more especiallyas it is the engineer's duty to attend tot the proper manipulation of these resistance boxes.
