Abstract

I have yur favor of 11th April.##B. Machines. The Societe Electrique Edison have written me to send them five "A" armatures [ten] Z machines you refer to. It seems to me useless & expensive to do this as you can rewind the replacement armatures now wound for "[B."] lights for less than it will cost to send the armatures you have back here & we send "A" amatures in their place. If you think this arangement will [prove] satisfactory please try & arrange it so with the Societe Electrique.##Exhibition [Tubing]. Referring to the tubing exhibited at the Electrical Exhibition this was sent over by the Electric Tube Co as an exhibit & you were quite right in sending it to London for Johnson to exhibit there##Price machines. I think the price I have quoted for small machines is low. Johnson was wrong in the price to [coment] to your people. I could not produce them at [Paris] as you will see when you get a machine. As to the large machine the stock in it is heavy the engine alone costs $3000 at present & we make but very little on it. You will see all this when you get the drawing which I am having made now as fast as possible.
