[LB011426], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Charles Batchelor, March 11th, 1882

Abstract

A letter came from hand the other day from Alfred Chatard Administratuer of the Societe Electrique Edison instructing what to send when a plant is ordered. I notice that in your sixty light plants I am only to send exactly sixty lamps and the same relative number of lamps to your other plants.##Now it is absolutely certain that some lamps will break the first few nights of running which will leave you without lamps to replace broken ones. I think you should modify these instructions & let us continue to send the same number of lamps that we have heretofore or else you will suffer great inconvenience should we send plants to distant European cities owing to the delay in getting lamps from Hamburg or Paris to replace broken ones. The amount of wire I am [instructed] to send seems very small indeed much less than our experience here leads us to suppose will be required
