[D8828ACS], Letter from Harold P Brown to Arthur Edwin Kennelly, August 4th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"We made a fine exhibit yesterday, as you will see from all the papers, and I had the report of the proceedings signed by all present and sent to the associated press throughout the country. I missed you but as no representative of the alternating current concerns favored us, it was just as well that there should have been no Edison man there. Will you please consult with Mr. Hastings by telephone as to returnign the apparatus arly in the week and as to measuring the Voltage of Dr. Laudy's Wallace arc light dynamo for him, as promised. Mr. Hastings has agred to allow the special Voltmeter (not the Cardew) to be donated to the college, as requested by Dr. L., so you will please see that it is left with them without fail and the bill sent to Mr. Hastings. Whatever action the Board of Electrical Control may take, it is certain that yesterday's work will get a law passed by the legislature in the fall, limiting the Voltage of alternating currents to 300 Volts." Sincerely yours, Harold P. Brown. [PS in Brown's hand?: "I have lost 12 lbs. over this struggle and am all worn out, but am going to the mountains today to rest, so I cannot attend to the above."
