[MB178], Letter from Alfred Chatard, Societe Electrique Edison to Charles Batchelor, December 17th, 1885

Item

Abstract

Two page handwritten letter acknowledging receipt of Nov 27th and Dec 3rd letters. Request you send a cut out of the municipal system to be able to examine construction. Please also send sketches of the dynamos because it is urgent for us to make a trial and would like to use the system for some small towns not yet lighted by gas. Give dimensions of the carbon of the lamps. Will make a trial with samples of leatheroid you sent. A month ago we sent you a full report of the Saint-Etienne Central Station; is working well and to answer demands for light, a double or triple extension will be necessary. Hope that other towns will be similar. Addressing to Mr. Edison a demand of approval for the statutes of future Cos and to strike while the iron is hot.
