[D8805ABE], Letter from George Milton Hopkins to Thomas Alva Edison, March 1st, 1888

Editor's Notes

"We had our electrical lecture last evening in Brooklyn. It seemed to be a complete success. ### When the picture of your lamp was projected and explained there was a murmur of satisfaction and when our of your [unclear] lamps was projected first without [unclear] current and item with its current there was great applause. Your portrait brought down the house. The experiments with lamps were successful and seemd to be very pleasing. ### I think we succeeded in giving the people an idea of electric illumination. I'm sure you came in for your full share of credit for what you have done in the development of incandescent lighting. It is probable the lecture will be repeated at its Brooklyn Institute." TAE marg: "Write thank him & say that the moment I get my house in order & settle down to quiet life I will give him a lot of good Lecture material."
