Abstract

Mr. Chas. Batchelor, Edison Laboratory, Orange, N.J Dear Sir:-- We have been trying to get from Bergmann & Co. the material and fittings for our new meters but they have been delaying us on everything very much; more than anything else, we are hampered on getting plates.##These, I understand, are made at the Laboratory for Bergmann & Co. It is very hard for us to have nto connect up customers without meters, but this is the state we have been in for the last month. We have no meters for more than one-third of our customers. We are now getting the meters but have only a very few plates.##Can I ask you if you cannot kindly do something to hurry these plates through? Yours very truly, C.J Field, General Manager####[handwritten at bottom: Have spoken with Gladstone on telephone concerning this. He has already supplied 300 zincs at least to Bergmann for Brooklyn, A.E.K [name mentions: Gladstone]
