Abstract

"The PRR people tell me that they experience considerable trouble reading what Philadelphia sends. We are now searching for this trouble and hope by tomorrow to locate and remove it. ### Pittsburg and Altoona circuit has not been in service for ten or twelve days on account of Pittsburg having no battery fluid on hand. I understand that it has been ordered for sometime but as yet has not been received. The Coquimbite battery lasted 14 days on the Altoona Mifflin 82 miles circuit. The only man that knew how to brace it up has been in bed for two weeks having been injured by a fall. ### Today we put on the Coquimbite battery that was on the [unclear] circuit and has been standing idle for ten or twelve days and it is as good as a new battery. ## I hope to be in Orange in three or four days. Please arrange to have 4 or 5 cells of Mr. Edisons battery on hand for trial. Mr Hamilton who was experimenting with this battery told me he was having a new coil made to try please ask him to have it done by the time I get back. ### I could not find Mr Ruimby in Balto and did not think it wise to wait and came here. I will write him." Yours very truly, W.S. Logue
