Abstract

"You will probably remember a few nights ago, when we were going down in the train together, my talking to you about a test of a new battery that I want to make on your lines. ### Would you be kind enough to indicate just what kind of carbon batteries you are using now, and also let me know where I could make such a test and the present number of bells that are being used on that circuit. I should like to have one of the hardest circuits that you have got—I mean one in which the battery cost both for materials and labor the most. This I think we can show up best on. ### I want this information simply to get at the probably quantity of cells that I shall have to prepare, and when it is ready shall be glad to call upon you in regard to the matter previous to doing anything, in order to get your permit." Yours very truly, Chas. Batchelor
