[D8805AIK], Letter from J C Ramage to Thomas Alva Edison, October 29th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I am an assistant in Cornell University pursuing the course in Electrical Engineering. I have at my dispola over and above the required work of the course, seven (7) hours a week for one year and possibly two years. Upon the advice of Dr. Thurston, the dean of the course. I am intending to devote this time to Chemistry-laboratory practice-but do not know just which branch of Chemistry wuld be best for my purpose. I desire if possible to take such a course as would be of benefit to me, in my choosen line of study, Electricity. ### Would you deem it too much trouble to advise me in the matter. I should perhaps add that I have had about six months practice in the quantitative laboratory, and of course all the wok leading up to this." I am, very respectfully, JC Ramage [Marginalia: "Better work in the Chemistry of Battery its [unclear] it known battery that isnt full of defects that should be remedied E"]
