[LB035320], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Philip Sidney Dyer, December 30th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Your letter under date 18th instant to Mr. Edison has been received. We do not understand what you mean by referring to Lalande's Secondary battery. In our letter to you, asking you to obtain from Lalande authority for Mr. Edison to use te battery for which he has already contracted, for electric lighting purposes, we make no reference whatever to Lalande Secondary Battery, and cannot see in what way you could have misinterpreted our communication. What Mr. Edison wants is the right to use the primary battery for electric lighting purposes, up to say 25 lights. In Mr. Edison's contract with Lalande, exception is made to electric lighting. Mr. Edison does not desire to use Lalande's Secondary or Storage Battery at all.##In regard to analysis of the two samples of ore forwarded you, it would doubtless be more satisfactory to your correspondent if you were to have the analysis made over there. Yours truly, A.O. Tate
