[D8456ZAC], Letter from Harry Ward Leonard to Thomas Alva Edison, February 2nd, 1884

Editor's Notes

Andrews showed me your letter to him requesting I read your answers to my questions. Have been expecting books of questions on meters, dynamos, boilers & engines; also book of answers. Regulating the station by eyeball. Andrews showed me your question about my "pathfinder" [railroad schedule concordance]: "it seems to me the Cons Dept is drawing things down pretty fine when, after placing a man in a position of trust such as mine....it questions an expense item of 25 cents." Will start running in the morning. Three quarters of my instruction of meter men is basic arithmetic, before even going on to electrical topics. Oil carried copper dust, causing much trouble, until got the dynamos level. TAE marg: "Tate didn't you send that Q & A by reg letter; I told you to week ago."
