Title

[D8465W], Letter from John Benjamin Verity to Samuel Insull, May 15th, 1884

Editor's Notes

Letterhead: B. Verity & Sons, Agents for the sale of the Edison incandescent lamps, London. Sending a box with two scones which the gufnor has had made as presents, one for Mr Edison and one for Mr EHJ." Sent them to you so you could pay carriage, duties, etc. Foods have no real market value, in fact cost 12lbs. a pair. Will write next week with news of 1st installation for 2 200 light dynamos. Please send any information on electirc lighting and gas engines. Edison socket is patented here but are the switch and cutouts? Don't like the switches that Bergmanns sent. "For this country something must be made with a ring or a knob to turn."
