Abstract

T.A Edison Esq., Dear Sir####I am in receipt of your favor of the 11th inst., and while I have the utmost respect for Mr. Kennelly's opinion, circumstances have forced me to a contrary opinion on this particular matter of conversion by condensers, and the circumstances have been that I have myself witnessed the reduction in accordance with one of the patents examined by Mr. Kennelly of a potential of 1000 volts down less than 50 volts, and the lighting of incandescent lamps by the induced current which apparently was as steady as the usual alternating currents used for lighting.####Mr. kennelly's assertion that the invention has no basis in theory of practice serves to demonstrate the complete novevlty of the invention.####Yours truly, T.J McTighe####[name mentions: Arthur Kennelly, Thos Edison, T.JMcTighe, Electrical Review]
