Abstract

Enclosed with D8434A; acknowledges D8434C. Was surpirsed by the price, and the high number of spare lamps recommended ("Do these lamps often give out?") Asks whether arc or incandescent would be less expensive, and whether it is possible or advisable to have one or more arc lights, with the remainder incandescent . Emphasizes that decorrative fixtures would not be needed in dwelling house or sugar factory, where "the cheapest fixtures" will be suitable. [Price conflict?]
