Abstract

"I am in receipt of a letter from Mr. Insull saying that he is unable to proceed with Commutators for Equalizers without your permission. I would call upon you in person tomorrow but that I am prevented by important political matters tomorrow. ### The Equalizer frames are now all gotten out by Allison Mfg. Co. The wire coils are all sent by Roebling & Sons. ### Bergmann & Co. refused the work point blank and returned the drawings. So also did the Machine Works but offered to do the work after Bergmann's refusal. I withdrew the work from excellent hands here and sent it to them. ### Bergmann's coils are too heavy and his designs are too crude to be economical. It would be impossible to place the whole contract with any one person now and, I trust that you will permit the Edison Machine Works to go on with the work." Yours truly, Wm. D. Marks, Sup. Eng'r.
