Abstract

[press/publicity] The editor of the Epoch has written to ask me if I can procure for that paper a talk with TAE and he signed with his name and headed, as in the custom with the Epoch in other cases, "views of TAE." The points suggested are "the future development of electrical lighting. Will gas as a lighting medium disappear from general use? Will a perfected insulator be discovered, -- a perfect subway? What advantages does the electrical profession offer to young college graduates? The extension of electrical motors on land and sea." In fact anything that may suggest itself to him. # Now could you, if TAE is willing, jot down on your phonoraph his views in rough form and send the draft to me? I will work it up and return it to you for review. This seems to me the simplest and easiest method of procdure. # PS - The length of the article ought to be about 2000 words
