Abstract

Garrison says you wish to have one of my pumps for your electroplating apparatus (for lamps); we are raising funds and will set about making pumps immediately; the machine will be nearly or entirely automatic and likely with a gutta percha pipe, which can be drawn out like lead pipe to any length.###Have you consdered using my pump with your fruit-preserving patent? Might work to mutual advantage.###Have discovered scheme for isolating each lamp attached to pump so an accident with one lamp won't affect others; this way pump can be used to capacity and lamps put on and off with as much ease as in your own system.
