Abstract

Am preparing a biographical sketch for Cassell & Co.'s series "Ten World's Workers" as a companion to one on "Prof. Morse"; would you provide "untechnical" explanations for several of your early inventions suitable for boys 12-18 and a general reading public; would like info on the "dial instrument for private line use" mentioned in J.B. McClure's sketch; the chemical vote recording apparatus; private line printer, and your experiments with a vibratory telegraph between Boston and Portland. "Was the Dial Instrument in its object methods &c like the Wheatstone Dial instrument described on p772 of Cassels 'Electricity in the Service of Man,' or like Briguet's on p773 of the same work. Were the currents produced with a battery &c."###"The vote recording apparatus may have an intererest politically."
