Editor's Notes

"Where I left you recently you expressed a wish to see the list of Electric plants secured by me since I came south. ### It gives me pleasure to give them. ### While other companies have given much lower estimates 'we have gotten them just the same' every time. ### Not having lost a plant in competition to date I cheerfully append the following list, hoping to augment the same considering very soon. [Includes a list of lights for factories] ### Electric plants ### 4585 Lamps Besides these, I have sided in the sale of others, especially the Tallassee Fals Mfg Company Lights 900 in fact, made the sale. Since I returned Sept. 1. I have closed the following five plants: [includes a list of plants] ### Making a total to date of 23 plants and 5335 Lamps. ### The Victor Mills plant and the Fort Mills plant are at Charlotte, N.C. The former in the city, the latter, at Fort Mills, within 12 or 15 miles. Charlotte is the home of the Westinghouse agent D.A. Tompkins, who had estimates is for [unclear] and little though of anybody else getting there." Your obdt svt. Morris Slattery "Wish I had a Phonograph."
