Abstract

"In regard to the telegram which we sent you in regard to insulation, so far as I can learn here, the trouble seems to be that you have not yet received from the Laboratory a sample of insulation, which, when heated, can be squirted on a wire, and which will soak into the cotton covering and maintain its toughness when cold. I understand that if our men here had a sample of an insulation which you consider exactly right as regards consistency &c., they could duplicate it in our compound. We, therefore, wired you to send us a quantity of your ordinary insulation, which can be used here as a standard of the qualifications we have mentioned." Yours truly, Edison Laboratory AO Tate
