[D8853AAW], Letter from William S Logue to Alfred Ord Tate, January 27th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"On account of so much trouble on the road have ben unable to get a lineman to cut wires into but one of the new offices, and from present outlook will not be able to have it done tomorrow. The trouble on [unclear] give us a little turn this afternoon. I think this will explain it. With were grounded here Phila has not battery enough to give us a lot. According to Mr Taylors (did open[?]) figuring Phila has one cell of battery to each 88 ohms resistance not counting the resistance caused by the Phone or Morse instruments. ### This is what I claimed all the time but did not succeed until today in getting an acknowledgement. Phila could not increase his battery today but will try to do so temporarily tomorrow if this removes the trouble it clears us and they will at once increase the battery permanently. ### I will be detained until next week." Yours very truly, W.S. Logue [Postscript: "Battery ordered not yet to hand. W.S.L."] [Marginalia: "Ans Jan 30/88"]
