Abstract

"All material which is obtained from our Store Room, for use in the various experiments conducted in this Laboratory, is charged against each of the experiments for which it has been used. In order to keep a proper account of a stock, it is absolutely necessary for us to have a memorandum of material taken from the Store Room, indicating what experiment the same] is chargeable against. Otherwise it means nothing more or less than a direct loss to Mr. Edison. I understand that you obtain material from the Store Room at night and do not leave a proper record behind. I wish that in future you would be very careful to make an accurate account of anything which you take away for your experiments so that we can charge it out as above." Yours truly, A.O. Tate
