Abstract

"I came up here on insulation, and they have a very fine machine. I am glad I came up for it will help us along wonderfull. I brought up a sample which covers "bang up" and will bend round any small diameter bobbin but is not good enough where one wire crosses another with pressure. ### I believe we want simply better mixing and a little more hardness and I think I can get this for them in a few samples. ### I have got a design for phono-cylinder and shall go over it finally tomorrow and order it made. And now Edison I want to say a word about this property here; if you have not seen it for some time you ought to come round this way in coming home; as, as soon as you do get home you will probably see Villard about the selling of it. This property is improving every day, every tool is working and every department is full of work. The discipline and methods of doing work are superior to any of our shops and if you come I am sure you will see that it is actually worth all we asked for it. ### Their foundry is ready for work although thye have only had two weeks to do it in." Truly yours "Batch"
