Abstract

Referring to yours of 11th I ordered the wire to be shipped to you some time since & had expected that long ere this you would have received it. Immediately upon the receipt of your letter I again gave instructions for it to be sent. Please let me know whether you have received it##The Latimer Clarke cells were ordered from Menlo Park. They take some time to make [illegible[ soon as they are ready they will be sent to you##We are working night & day to get the exhibit ready for Paris. Already a number of packages have been shipped & others will follow in quick succession.##I do not see how it is possible to get your house lights up before your departure but we might manage it if you were to have the lamps hung by wires & so light your house up temporarily I will do anything I possibly can to further your wishes
