[D8738AAA], Letter from Charles Edward Chinnock to Thomas Alva Edison, July 2nd, 1887

Editor's Notes

"I am in receipt of yours of July 1st and the news therein contained is just about right. While the mercury outside is very high and our spinal maroow is correspondingly low you can well understand why a verification of this kind on the lamp question is particularly opportune. ## If we are anxious for 15 lamps per electrical horsepower and require bracing, I am quite sure you will agree with me that our various agents are also in need of the good news. I trust you will not object to our sending a circular letter, embodying all contaned in yours, to our representatives throughout the United States. ## I hope that on your next visit to New York, if you should happen up this way, you will give us a call, as the knoweldge that I have your support is particularly valuable to anyone, holding the position that I do here. ## The information that you have given us, ought to prove adequate to secure every important installation, upon which we have a chance to bid and if it fails to prove a Waterloo to our enemies, I am ready and willing to take the blame. ## Trusting that I may hear further from you on the subject I remain."
