Abstract

[noteworthy letter about datime lighting of retail space] We increased Marshall Field & Co's plant with a 250 light machines we've had from you, to run 60 32-cp and 130 16-cp lamps. Machine is one of best we've had from you, but it doesn't bring lamps to the intensity MF&Co desire. "The light is used in the day time and a white light is necessary. Breakage is not of consequence in this case." Machine is in warm place and with full load gets very hot and doesn't provide enought light. We've tried running it faster, and also plan to switch from 106 volt to 96 volt lamps. What else can we do?
