[D8933AAN8], Letter from Harold P Brown to Arthur Edwin Kennelly, July 9th, 1889

Editor's Notes

My Dear Mr. Kennelly: Your kind letter of the 29th was forwarded to me while out of town, and missed me on account of my returning earlier than anticipated. It reached me last night, and I hafe acted upon your suggestion in my testimony this A.M. As the case progresses I will hold myself in readinenss to make the test suggested, or to off to do so before the referee. If it seems necessary. From the line of quesitons thus far propounded by Mr. Cockran, I judge that he intends to try to show that a galvanometer measruerment of a living animal is unreliable, and that the alternating current is not amenable to Ohm's law: also to present persons to allege that they have received the full force of the alternating current or the lightning without being killed. If the accuracy of the galvanaometer tests is attacked, could you not give in popular form a description of the use of instruments in finding and locating borken ocean calbes? &c. Cockran is apparently not satisfied with any evidence unless the witness has actually done the act testifed to. Sincerely yours, Harold P. Brown.
