Abstract

May 8th, 1889####[TAE marg: OK E]####Thos. A Edison, Esq.,####Orange, N.J.####My dear Mr. Edison:####Mr. Thurston of Providence arrived here yesterday morning and spent the day with me yesterday, and to-day. He is compelled to return to Providence to-night, but expects to be here again on Friday morning, and on Friday therefore, if all goes favorably, I will bring him to see you and also to the lamp factory to see the light experiments if they are to be shown there.####Since I have seen your water analogues, I have to a degree lost interest in the demonstration of the problem by the actual lights themselves.####If I understood you correctly, you also [believed] the [water] analogue a more favorable illustration; and in that sense I think we may well go upon the one and drop the other. Please however, communicate your views fully to Mr. Upton.####If you should think it desirable to carry on the two demonstrations and there should remain an opinion at the hearing that the case will be benefitted by having Mr. Dyer take charge of those experiments and the exposition of those to the Court, I will arrange it so that that may be done with the very [latest]-- perhaps [more?] of loss by damaging the chronological order with which I desire to see the case grow up before the court.#####Very truly yours####Grosvenor Lowrey
