Abstract

"Kindly read the enclosed from Mr. Wirt. When the mechanical make-up of the Three-wire Meter was standardized, and the meter book written up, the fact that the early experiments never settled the points referred to by Mr. Wirt has pointed out by Mr. Leonard and others, and confirmed by Mr. Edison, who has, as you see, been doing much work himself, in this line. ### If you will sign and send the enclosed letter to him, we think it will result in our securing much valuable information." [TAE marginalia: "Tate gave them to Kennely." ### "Say its important to Light Co.-that I will have Mr. K do as required & I spose foot the bills-"E]
