Abstract

I have your favor of the 5th. inst.##With relation to your enquiry as a motive power can be used for ordinary road carriages conveniently and cheap, I beg to state that the only way of doing this would be by means of storage batteries, which so far have not arrived at such a state of developmement as to allow of their being used economically for such purposes.#Concerning your second enquiry, I have never made any experiments in connection with the matter, and therefore cannot very well offer an opinion.
