Abstract

4th December 8##Dear Mr Hastings##I have heard this evening that the experiments on killing animals by electricity are included to take place tomorrow afternoon. That is intelligence which takes us rather by surprise because our apparatus has been out of use some time and to test it properly requires the use of that high resistance you still have in New York. If it is necessary to try the experiment tomorrow afternoon then we will do the best we can, but I would suggest that if it be equally convenient it would be much better to defer it till evening. In the first place the day has so many duties that it is difficult to fix ones entire attention upon the preliminaries, and also because am experiment of this kind by daylight naturally attracts very much curiosity and renders the necessary privacy and care difficult to obtain. I would therefore suggest any hour after 7 o clock and I think this would wuit Dr Peterson, but if it of is any inconvenience to the gentlemen interested then an time shall in their own##Yours very truly##A.E. Kennelly
