Abstract

"I am pleased to advise you that, after some little correspondence with the Edison United M'f'g. Co., who are the successors of the Edison Wiring Co. (the latter having installed your underground system of conductors), they have agreed to remove from your promises the whole of your present underground installation, and substitutes Edison tubes entirely at their own expense. The following is an extract from a letter that I have just rec'd from the Vice-President of the Edison United M'f'g. Co.- ### 'You are right in supposing that I realize the necessity of satisfying a customer and, with that idea in view, have forwarded communication to the Edison Machine Works, asking them to send a competent man to consult with Mr. Kennelly with the view of handing us an estimate for the underground conductors required to make Mr. Burke's installation satisfactory. On receipt of their bid you can rest assured the matter will receive prompt attention, ' ### When these tubes are laid, you can rest assured that there will be no repetition of the annoyance that have been so frequent during the past year."
