Abstract

[answer to D8846AAJ] "Application No 290 Dated Feb 28th 1881####Replying to your letters 24th inst. I cannot except at great expence prepare the specimens you ask for as it requires highly polished flat steel plates and a powerful hydraulic press neither of which I have at present.####The Examiner must know that [plumbage?] is one of the nicest things to press that is possible, and with sharp and flat true dies can be punched in exceedingly thin filaments. Cant you beg off-- I want to get a broad claim on the idea of forming thin carbon sheets and punch filaments out of such sheets as I think the future will bring it into prominence
