[D8853AER], Letter from Pennsylvania Railroad, William F Taylor (Pennsylvania) to William S Logue, October 8th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have your letter of yesterday and appreciate your situation. ### Your statement of tests made show conclusively that there is serious trouble last of fan [unclear] possible it is a defective ground at your battery. ### As I 13 your arrangement you have made a loop out of No 7 & 3 East of F which is used as No 7 and terminate No 3 at F Now if this don't work out right and [unclear] does not remane trouble east of F would it not be a grand plan to let no 3 work on an intermediate Balling same as before or at least terminate no 3 at F and give it its own Battery and thien take the 80 cells now an No 7 and add about 60 more wet and give no 7 wire to its own battery and make a loop out 3E and 7E from F. ### This of course would remane the interference bretween No 3 & 7. ### Your test shows an awful resistance an No 7 east of F somewhere. ### There is absolutely no reason why Phone should not work bang up but MD & PS and the success which we have with it test B & [unclear] proves it. The Phone gives us no concern [unclear] any more the only thing we have to do is to keep up Battery the other part takes care of its self. ### For my part if I have any influence at all I am ready to use it in our Co suppling the Condidtions for working Phone. & I believe REP would sustain me because we need relief so badly an No 7. ### If it seems wise you can write a request for me to come down or better still if HF would ask for me and then we could all consult and get hold of T.G. & I think we could get what it wanted. ### I could not well go before middle of next week. ### H.F. certainly ought to know there is something rotten when with Phone off No 3&7 interfere out of the same Batty."
