Abstract

Ack 5/13 [missing?] "Why put any more boilers in until you absolutely need them. The new boilers can be erected inside of twe weeks, and I do not see whye you cannot pull through until September, which will give us more time for raising money." ## If all the lamps you now have connected were to burn at once you would be working your feeders to their full capacity … be careful … or you wil have some trouble.## recd map of connected lights; mathematicians will review thoroughly ## Bergmann says lamps without porcelain shades cost about $25 ## I do not see why our stock should not be 'boosted' up to $1000 per share. I wish they would give me a chance and let me see what I can do towards it." [snapshot?]
