Abstract

[LAMP ASSEMBLY AT PATTERSON? TAE marg: This detaill & defect should be remedied at once--as we are going far the S & M Renewals at Paterson.] "Your favor of the 24th inst. In regard to the complaint of Mr. Brock is duly receied, and we note your remarks thereon. We have called Mr. Holzer's attention to this matter and he says he will see you to-day about it. We will have Mr. Marshall make a personal investigation of this matter. The great trouble is at Paterson, that these lamps are placed on Power Looms and the vibration is something tremendous, in fact, we have had to devise a special arrangement in the socket to prevent the lamps from falling out. When the lamps were first put in they fell out at the rate of three or four per night, owing to the enormous vibration of these Power Looms. There may be something is this that causes the breakage at the point of clamping."
