Abstract

"We enclose you herewith some correspondence regarding batteries from Mr. William H. Meadowcroft. ### These two companies,--The Mason-Wood Electrical M'f'g Company, and the Roberts Brevoort Electric Company are apparently the leaders in this business. ### The Lamp Co., is willing to order 10 cells from each Company, and have the same sent to your Laboratory to test, if you can arrange to make a thorough test of them in comparison with the battery of the Phonograph Company. If you feel that the test can be made equally well upon a small number of cells kindly let us know. ### We wish to have the test made this summer so that Mr. Meadowcroft can make statements to parties wishing small lamps for lighting, regarding what may be expected from primary batteries. ### It is of the greatest importance in primary batteries to light small lamps with, that the E.M.F. of the battery remain constant. This is the item we wish carefully looked after in the case tests were made." Yours truly, The Edison Lamp Company by Fracis R. Upton Treas [TAE marginalia: "give to Kennelly and write Upton to order 3 cells of each kind E"]
