[D8853AAA], Letter from William S Logue to Alfred Ord Tate, January 4th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"In accordance with your letter of Dec 27th I went to Balto and ordered 16 cells of the Coquimbite battery sent to Altoona to put on both Pittsburg and Mifflin circuits. Your letter of Dec 30th did not reach me until I [unclear]. In case Mr. Edison gets his battery out very soon I think I can get the Altoona people to keep the Coquimbite battery. It was absolutely necessary to do something about the battery to keep these people quiet and if the Coquimbite turns out OK the Altoona people will I think keep it and we can equip the other offices with Mr Edisons battery. In case the battery from Balto fails we can send it back. I asked today for authority to draw $100 which [unclear] me so I can report at 100 Wall St on Monday next. There is some talk of putting two more phone offices on the Mifflin circuit the only thing that holds it is the battery." Yorus very truly, W.S. Logue [Marginalia: "Ans Jan 6/88"]
