[D8852AAS], Letter from France. Minister of Posts and Telegraph to Western Union, May 17th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Mr. Edison has recently present to the French administration of Posts and Telegraphs a new model of electric cable, of which the conductors are covered with a wrapping of cotton, impregnated with an insulating substance and which are protected by a sleeve of lead. According to the information which he has furnishes, a certain length of cable of this model has been put into service as an experiment on the Telegraph or Telephone lines of the Western Union Company.### I would be very much obliged, Mr. Director, if you would inform me of the importance of the experiments undertaken by the Western Union Company, and if any, what results, they have given. ### Please receive, Mr. Director, the assurance of my high consideration"
