Abstract

Referring to the request, in your letter of Oct. 31., for permission for the Members of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers to visit my shops etc. the City permit are to say that during my experiments on the Electric Light &c at Menlo park where everything was under my control visitors were always welcome to visit my Laboratory and works. Now however [visitors] are now in the hands of the Company and I very much regret in this case they object to any visitors being allowed in the works.
