[D8814ACB], Letter from R C Thorpe to Alfred Ord Tate, May 1888

Abstract

I wish very much to obtain a situation in TAE's lab. I am not particular as to what department you might place me in but would prefer something concerning electricity as I am much interested in that subject although I have not had the opportunity to study it much. # I have read all the books on electricity that I could get and made batteries and jells(?) for my own use but I know that this does not ammount to much with you. Still I am sure that I can learn quickly enough to soon be useful to you. # For reference I give the following names of gentlemen some of whom you will recognize as being employed at the lab. # [long list of eight names] # Hoping you will give me application your kind attention.
