Abstract

I find your fixture in many of the shop windows here. It looks very strange to see your and our lamps so far from home. ##You should see the new stations in Berlin. They are built, each of the two, for 6,000 16 cp lamps lighted at the same time. "We have nothing in America to compare with them in solidity and perfection of steam fitting." The German Co. is in the hands of very strong practical men and are carrying on the business in a way that is doing your name a great deal of good. ##Siemens makes a splendid machine for them. His cable appears to be very practical and he guarantees it for five years, which seems to prove that Siemens considers it good. ##I shall try to keep the German Co. friendly with the Lamp Co., as they are evidently going to do central station business on a large scale in the next few years.
