Abstract

St. Joseph, Mch. Feb 18 1889####Mr A.O. Tate####Orange, N.J.####Dear Sir####What do you think of the idea of notify the ten Division Operators on the Pennsylvania Railroad that are now using the chromic acid battery that we can furnish them with zines with mercury through them. They are still using the Bergmann zine which needed Amalgamatory every time the battery is renewed, Mr. Lattig of the Lehigh Valley is still using the Bunsen Battery and would no doubt avail himself of the chromic acid battery if advised. There is not the slightest doubt of the chromicc acid battery giving the best results and lasting longer than the Bunsen.####If you desire it I will write these Gentlemen, if you do so from the Laboratory. Please be particular in telling the Penna folks exactly how they must make their orders read, that is that it must be sent to Orange [instead?] of to Bergmann. The address of the Penna did ---- that are wrong the Chrome Battery is. H. {Fondersmith?]####H [:Londersmith?]####Div Apr PRR. 32nd and Market Sts Philadelphia, and A R Kiefer did opr PRR Harrisburg Pa.####Bergmann charges 75 cents for his zines and as I understand it there is a profit of about 19 ents for us in the merury zines at the prices this is I think in accordancec with the figures furnished by Mr Ott, you might see if my memory serves me correctly before deciding####Yours very truly####W.S. Logue####[name mentions: Mr. Ott, H [Londersmith?], J.W. Lattig, A.O. Tate, W.S. Logue, Bergmann, Pennsylvania Railroad]
