Abstract

Your favor of 15th re the circular on Distribution of Lights received. Sent copies of this list to the foreign companies. We have no answers from any of our agents or others as yet. I expected to have heard from them before this. # The meeting last night was a successful one indeed; I think one of the best we had. We had 25 present, and all seemed to think highly of Howell's able and instructive paper and diagrams. I am sure everyone learned something on the subject which most of us are ignorant of. # The warm weather will soon be coming on, and, it will be difficult to get people here after July 1st. If we were to discontinue for the summer months this would give us three more meetings before July 1st. As the meetings of the Association have been very popular, and have created interest in the business, the whole thing would be helped along if we could get TAE to invite the Junior Edison Association out to his lab some night, and have Batchelor and others give us a short talk on some of the interesting points of the system, and, perhaps TAE might say a few words. This would cement the friendly feeling existing among our people, and would be thought well of by many of those who now attend the Junior Edison Association meetings. # Would you undertake to ask TAE if he will accede. Junior Edison association held meeting at Edison lab on 15 June, Edison made a few remarks and Kennelly deliverd lecture on new methods of finding faults in underground wires (http://books.google.com/books?id=VlVEAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA324)
