[D8835ABA], Letter from John Kruesi to Charles Batchelor, February 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have your favor of 6th inst., and in reply beg to state that I have looked carefully over the orders received from the Laboratory, but cannot find any that are not filled. ### The split pulley ordered by you under date of Feb. 2nd? 26x4x1 and 11x6x1 15-16 pulleys were ordered by you January 25th. The order read '1 5-16" bore. After we had them all finished we received a letter from Mr. Livor stating that they were to be 1 5-16. We changed them immediately and the pulleys were shipped on the 4 inst. The split pulley 22x9x1 15-16 was shipped you on January 26th. We have looked as far back as Sept. 1st. 1887 but cannot find that we have had an order for a pulley 30 x 12 or one 21 x 6. Please telegraph us if you wish these pulleys gotten out and we will attend to same at once. ### I am sorry that Mr. Edison should be dissatisfied and angry in not getting his orders filled, but as you will see from this it is certainly not our fault. We have not had any orders that were not filled within a few days. If you will take the trouble to notify us of exactly what you want. I will use my best endeavors to forward everything as quickly as possible, or at least as well as we do for any other customer." Very truly yours, John Kruesi
