Title

[D8618E], Letter from Western Electric Co to Thomas Alva Edison, May 10th, 1886

Editor's Notes

We send you by express today a package of native grass from New Zealand, sent by Dr. C. Lemon, Superintendent of Government Telegraph in the Colonies. ##Dr. Lemon writes as follows: [quotes letter from Lemon]: 'By this mail I send you a package of native grass for lamp carbons for TAE. I shall be glad to know the result of his experiments. I find the grass will assume a perfect symmetrical shape by passing it through a draw plate. This may be useful to TAE as without doubt it makes the grass denser.' [End of Lemon letter quote]. ##We shall be glad to hear from you, giving your opinion as to the value of this grass and will forward same to Lemon. [Note that there appars to be handwriting on the back of this letter, but there is no image of it.]
