[D8933ABF], Letter from Harold P Brown to Samuel Insull, July 17th, 1889

Abstract

The Attorney General wishes me to ask you to communicate with Mr. Edison and Mr. Kennelly to ascertain whether they will not be willing to appear before the referee on the Kemmler case for the State, and state whether in their opinion the apparatus supplied to the State for electrical executions an be so applied as to produce certain and painless death. There has been so much absurdity in the testimony of Mr. Westinghouse's witness, that Mr. Edison could dispose of by a word. If necessary the commission ould come to him instead of the reverse. Mr. Johnson thinks this important. Will you kindly communicate with Mr. Edison and let me know at 45 & 47 Wall St.
