Abstract

I send you herewith blue prints from meter drawings with an apology for their appearance, as the draughting room is not at present up to such a standard as I could wish.####Mr. Edison spoke to me several times, anterior to his departure, regarding a method which I think is mechanical of making determinations for conductors, and requested me to visit the Laboratory and learn it. At such time as you may find it convenient, I shall be glad to call for this purpose.####In the matter of meters the data regarding the number of amperes and time of use does not seem from what I can learn through Mr. Jenks and others to be very clear, possibly there may be some general law which can be reached, governing the capacity of these meters. At any rate I should be very glad to have your report, and if you can grant me a sufficiently lengthy interview to discuss this matter in all of its aspects.####Up to the time of getting out the drawings, I took no interest in it, as I presumed that the Standardizing Committee had reached definite conclusions, and that no further discussion was necessary.####Yours very truly, Wm. D. Marks, Engineer in Chief####[name mentions: Wm. D Marks, A.E Kennelly, William Jenks, Thos Edison, West Orange Laboratory]
