[D8828ADL], Letter from Edison Electric Light Co, Frank Seymour Hastings to Arthur Edwin Kennelly, November 26th, 1888

Abstract

"Dr. Peterson and Prof. Doremus have asked Mr. Brown where they could kill a horse by the alternating current. They have a subject ready, and I think that he can be removed to Orange at any time. May I trouble you to call me up on the telephone tomorrow, immediately upon receipt of this letter, advising me whether you can undertake this and at how early a date. This is a matter of very great importance as the experiment is partly with a view to determining the voltage in connection with the new method of capital, punishment, and I shall be greatly obliged for any assistance rendered." Yours very truly, F.S. Hastings, Secty & Treas.
