Abstract

The man who will have charge of the Village plant at Roselle came here today with an introduction from you to Mr Claudius. After consulting with Mr Edison I told the gentleman that Mr Claudius would not be here today and he said he would call tomorrow. I at once telegraphed you so as to [prevent] his coming tomorrow##Mr Claudius' work here is kept secret even the emplyees of the Laboratory not being allowed in the room where it is conducted without a permit from Mr Dyer. Furthermore your man would gain nothing of advantage to him in his work at Roselle as Claudius works out the data for the system & that is all that is required - how it is got at Mr Edison prefers as few as possible should know.##Please instruct your Roselle man not to come here to see Mr Claudius' work & if at any time you wish anyone else to come here for the purpose kindly communicate with Mr Edison before sending them
