Abstract

I have yours of 21st. Please let me know what are the [causes] on "regulators" now. [Swi-e] your hand started up again I have not received the causes that you were in the habit of sending me before you left [--enls].##we can supply moore with 10 candle lamps and [even] [---] light candle lamps in [series].##Have you sent any [$20] Candle lamps to London [&] if so [when] & where [---] of London [---]##I should only order just enough platinum [cases] to get along with until we are in better shape for funds.##The Machine Works charge you the same price for K [business] as they do others. I think if you look at the brush you will not think it expensive.##You had better place this order with Morris Tasker & Coimmediately.##Please have Lawson [d----] carbons in kerosene for 1/1 hour then plate the ends if O.K. - Take out a days run while the moulds are hot and put in kerosene until ready for use then put in plate and run through. I think this will prevent carbons from absorbing [water] & oxidizing and do no harm as the kerosene will evaporate in the vacuum.
