[LB015247], Letter from Samuel Insull to Charles Batchelor, February 6th, 1883

Editor's Notes

Your letter of 2[8]th January to Mr Edison came to hand this a.m. He has requested me to answer it.##C. Dynamo. I got the enclosed sketch from Clarke. He says that it is what you want and will enable you to understand that the shaft with the Porter Engine and that with the Armington Engine should be exactly the same size. At the Central Station here the Porter engines with Bed Plate were taken away and the Armington Engine & bed plate was put right in its place. I sent yiou some time back a Blue Print of the Armington Base. If the enclosed does not give you what you want please cable immediately you get this. Clarke says however that it will be having read your letter.##[St---ment] [Blowers] (2) & Cylinder Oilers (2) shall be sent forward to you in due course.##Plating. I will send you a description of this by next mail.##[Motors]. I have asked for full Drawings of these; they shall go forward as soon as I can get them. Would you like a sample made of each kind sent say, to Hamburg or any other Port you may designate. [&] could you get a permit for us to send them to Paris.## Bills. A full statement of the Societe Indus. it Com. Edison's account was sent forward by the S. S. Alaska on 3rd inst. Prior to our billing goods to them we used to bill everything to "Chas. Batchelor." Do you want a statement of this account also. It includes goods for the Societe Electrique Edison before we used to bill to them direct. Anything you may require in this way you shall have but of course I want time to look up old records.
