Abstract

"The cylinders of Attorney Gen'l Webster to Mr. Edison arrived here in a broken condition. All the cylinders which we sent you wrapped up in excelsior and sawdust had records on them, and Mr. Edison fears that you have mistaken them for blank cylinders. He has requested me to write and ask you to have all cylinders which are sent from England to the Laboratory packed in excelsior and sawdust, as that seems to be the only way in which they will reach us in good condition. We packed two cylinders in excelsior and sawdust the other day, threw them out of a three story window and kicked them around for two hours without breaking same. We sent you on Saturday last 30 cylinders, and will express you another lot in a few days." Very truly yours, A. Theo. E. Wangemann
