Abstract

"For your information we send you a copy of letter received from Mr. Beggs under date of November 17th as follows:-- ## 'Edison Lamp Co., Harrison, N. J. ## Gentlemen:-- Our new lamps are showing a very much shorter life than the old; in fact I do not think half as much. They also blacken in much shorter time than the old lamps, and as a means of overcoming to some extent what you may claim high pressure, please discontinue sending in 103 volts, and send instead 105 volts. This will make our order for 104 and 105 lamps indead of 102 to 104 volts as originally ordered. ## Yours truly, (Signed) Jno. T. Beggs.'" Quoted document is D8734ABC.
