[D8902AAM], Letter from Bergmann & Co to Arthur Edwin Kennelly, July 24th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Re yours of May 13th, you quote us the price of 13 cents per pair for the new type of No. 4 meter plates cast from an amalgam of pure zinc and mercury. You do not mention in your letter whether this price includes the furnishing of the copper rod which is cast in the plate and the making of the mould. If the copper rod is included, we presume that it would reduce the price of the plates considerably if we furnished the rods ready for casting in the plate. # It is necessary to furnish these meter plates to the meter stations at once, and we should therefore be pleased to receive your quotations for the plates in lots of 10,000 and also your reply to the above. If you require us to make the mould for the meter plates, kindly inform us of the best form for the same, and if it is necessary to allow anything for shrinkage. We enclose you blue print of the new meter plate furnished us by the Standardizing Bureau. # As we are very anxious to place the order for these plates without any further delay, we trust that you will give the matter your immediate attention.
