[D8941AAR1], Letter from John William Lieb to Philip Sidney Dyer, May 20th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[This is an enclosure to D8941AAQ] (Copy.) Dear Friend Dyer:-- Your favors of April 30th and May 11th came duly to hand. In regard to the information you ask about the Siemens Cables, I would say that we are doing finely in Milan,and I have unlimited confidence in them for high or low tension currents. Direct or alternate according to which they were constructed for. I consider that Prof. Forbes was misled by information he received from some parties interested in deprecating the Siemens cables. There are probably more of them in use in Italy than elsewhere and under more trying conditions (2,000 volt altenrate current) and they give perfect satisfaction everywhere. I consider the Siemens cables the best made and most reliable in the market and we continue to use them on a large scale for our undergroudn work, especially high tension circuits. Yours &c. Signed J. W. Lieb.
