[LB034021], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Edward Dean Adams, November 11th, 1889

Abstract

[SELECTABLE?] Your letter of 8th instant has been duly received. ### I cabled Siemens Bros. For appropriate estimate on sizes cabled. The prices are rather high when 45% is asked, and I think they can be made in this country. I am certain I can make as good cable of the character we want as the London people. ### My engineer is now along the Niagara River, making preliminary survey inquiries about ice, anchoring &c., &c. I have two young men at Buffalo making a lighting survey. A couple of weeks will finish it, and will show the position of every kerosene lamp, gas jet, electric and arc, and the hours of burning. This will give us within five per cent of every man's gas bill. Very truly yours, [signed] TAE
