Editor's Notes

Edison Electric Light Co.,####Edison's Laboratory, Orange, N.J####Gentlemen:--####Our attention has been called by a representative of the firm of Edes, Mixter & Heald, Plymouth, Mass. to the low price which they quote for chemically pure zinc, namely, 7 1-2 cents. We are about to recommend that all meter plates in future be made at the Laboratory, as we understand your facilities there, which have been somewhat expensive to you, are ample for the production of any desired number of meter plates amalgamated according to the new process. It, therefore, occurred to us that possibly this quotation may be of interest to you.####Very Truly Yours, W.J Jenks, Director####[Note on the bottom of the page: We shall be ready to cccast the NEW PATTERN zinc whenever modified to do so. Also Mr. English is procuring samples of above pure since what we will analyze and [there follows a word or two of code]####[name mentions: W.J Jenks, Edes, Mixter & Head, West Orange Laboratory, John C English, Arthur Kennelly, Edison Electric Light Co.]
