Abstract

Yours of 10th makes clear you've reached the limits of your feeders, as I predicted. You need new determination, for which we're awaiting data. "The dynamos are so made that all the [resistance] blocks, but one or two, should be out when the feeders have their calculated number of lamps. If you continue to add lamps you will not have pressure enough, owing to overloading your feedrs, although the dynamos and engine may be working far under their lamp capacity."
