[LB006557], Letter from Charles Lorenzo Clarke to Charles T Porter, November 17th, 1880

Editor's Notes

I would like to know if any alterations in the dimensions of the cylinder or admission and exhaust pipes ahve been made since your original design was drafted, of which we have the tracing? This will determine some particulars in our settings. We wish to lead your exhaust direct into a large Berryman-Feed-water Heater which will show a decided gain in ceonomy. I presume that you have no objection to so doing, the aggregate area of the tube being several times larger than the exhaust. Mr. Edison gained the impression from Mr. Church of the Buckeye Co. that you have the impression the dynamo will not be ready for at least two months. Nearly all the hands in the machine shop are at work upoin it and it is being brought very far towards completion and will be so in much less than three weeks. Every part is heree and most of them completed. The armature is in such a condition than thehn whole force can in a few days be put upon it and soon complete it. We hope to have the engine in three weeks.
