Abstract

[Letterhead of Office of the Scientific American] C.W. Dean of our Amateur Photo Society (I am President) said you were going to get him, at small cost, a standard incandescent Edison lamp and galvanometer. He has had a box made for it; are you waiting for it? The light is to be the same as that for Prof. Barker. We need it to continue our experiments and thought we would have it by now. I was pleasantly surprised at the completeness with which Mr. Johnson had his house fitted up and at the lack of noise from the machinery in the cellar. A definite improvement from the preliminary experiments at Menlo Park 4 years ago.
