Abstract

"I was called upon a day or two ago by a W. L. S. Fairbanks of Boston, who has some invention for converting high tension currents for incandescent lights. He states that he has tried it on a small scale and it is a great improvement over the converters now used. He wants a little capital to assist him in taking out his patents &c, in return for which he offers an interest in the invention. ### I do not know whether you care to look into this matter, nor is it of the slightest interest to me personally, but I thought it well to let you know of the facts so that you may determine the matter for yourself. ### His address is International Hotel, Park Row, N.Y. City."
