Abstract

"I am fixing up Dr. Roberts of the Board of Health with a dog killing apparatus to demonstrate to the Mayor the practicability of substituting Electrical killing for Drowning of Dogs. I don't want to buy a Westinghouse Machine just now. Have you an alternating Dynamo that will give us 1000 volts. Which you can loan us for a week or so? ### If it is a license Hewitt says He will have an appropriation made to buy a Westinghouse Plant for this purpose before he goes out of of[ffice]."
