Abstract

"We send by same mail a photo of our Special Double Engine driving a dynamo with gears (the pinion having raw hide teeth,) a plant for the U.S.S. Cruiser 'Boston'. ### This seems a very desirable arrangement for Marine work, as but a small place is required, and the weight of the whole plant is very moderate. ### We have in progress, for the Navy Department, some plants of the same Engine coupled direct to the Dynamo, and shall take pleasure in sending you a Cut of same. ### We invite your attention to the great success of this Engine for those Systems of Electric Lighting requiring a very high Speed." TAE marg: "Tate: thank him."
