[D8853AAS], Letter from William S Logue to Alfred Ord Tate, January 24th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"The greater part of the trouble I wrote you about as being on the Mifflin circuit has been removed. I go to Mifflin tomorrow to see if I cannot remove the balance. I am rather inclined to think that the measurement of the condensers are not always as true as they should be. "Supplies for additional office." In filling our order for instrument for the two additional offices Bergmann sends part of the material badly spattered with ink. Do you not think that all the material should at least have the ink marks taken off. He also sent only one key (but bills two) and this one of the old style with no battery cut off post on it. I have telegraphed him for two of the new style. ### Condensers. ### The order sent to the machine works read 2 1-1/2 consensers. The condensers sent are marked 2.62MF and 2.6 MF. I tried to reduce the large condensers so as to use them on the coil but failed to get good results. I enclose a copy of telegram sent to Schenectady. ### Delays ### Such mistakes as Bergmann & Co. make and getting the wrong size condensers delay my work very much. Work that should be done in a day or two takes a week on account of getting material that I cannot use." Yours very truly, W.S. Logue
