Abstract

[image 71] [yellow fever] "Herewith we enclose the extract from our Experiment Records relating to the effect of Gasoline, Rhigolene & Caustic [illeg] upon animal and vegetable 'life.' No attempt has been made to alter or mislead in this statement. You will observe that gasoline does not always fatal to animals though it seems to be so to vegetable organisms. This may be due as Mr Edison points out to [illeg] contacts between gasoline and a moist surface. ## If ther is any experiment you would wish to suggest, we shall be very pleaseed to try it if it lies in our power, and Mr. Edison gives his [consent?]."
