Editor's Notes

I hoped to have seen you on the occasion of the visit from those interested in the Phonograph Co but I learned that you were absent. Write thanking you very much for the kind report and attention to Jameson's Battery -- I wished to ask you what you think of it? Is it a discovery worthy of being followed up?

Jameson of course believes to be able be improved from of Lead, to obtain as good results with 1/3d of the might --this still leaves it 5 times as inefficient or rather only 1/5th of the efficiency of the test chemical battery -- and he claims as much ten [------] [---------]. If you deem it really in the line of practical value, efficient to enlist your aid I will bother with--otherwise not--I have no real interest or preference as yet.
