Abstract

Enclosed find curves. Order 372 is the Burnished Fibre experiment. Lamps set up on test at 96 c.p. The burn of which shows well. I have a number of Fibres Burnished suitable for the 10 c.p. lamps & will have them on test on Tuesday next. If we obtain good life in the 10 c.p. burnished, then the burnishing process will be in order for all types of lampes. YOur attention to a curve of a 100 c.p. lamp set up on test at one thousand (1,000) candles. Clamp made of the Indian Ink whilst the lamp was burning particles of the Indian Ink Clamp deposted itself to the side of the globe and continue so until the clamp narrowed down to a small contact & then carbon relieved[?] itself at the time of Two hours burning. I am having shanks made on the 100 c.p. Fibres quite large size of shank 30 x 200/1000 the size will do the required work on all high c.p. lamps.
