[D8805AAC], Letter from Standard Thermometer Co to Thomas Alva Edison, January 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Mr. Francis R. Upton knowing you are interested in the regulation of heat by the use of a thermostat, suggested that we call your attention to the one we are now making for the [unclear] Co. of Elmira, N.Y. This instrument can be set at any required point high and low and has in its working given perfect satisfaction. We enclose one of the [unclear] we shall be happy to send you one instrument to experiment with if you wish. The [unclear] people are at work on a similar apparatus to control the heat of baking ovens by regulating the draughts. This will be accomplished as soon as we send them a thermometer we are now making for the purpose. This we will also send to you when completed if desired." Yours truly, Standard Thermometer Co. [TAE Marginalia: "You can send one for experiment I [unclear]"]
