Abstract

Just received your telegram as follows: "Will meter dynamo cost same municipal same size need information for power scheme suggested yesterday. Answer immediately giving full information." I do not understand how you are going to use this information. I understand that you saw Mr. Johnson yesterday regarding this meter problem as it strictly belongs to the Sprague business. I suggest that you need a municipal machine that will deliver 36,000 watts, but to get 36,000 watts you need a larger machine than a 36,000 watt dynamo. Please send necessary data so that I can work this out and will do what I can for you.
