[MBLB3020], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Sherburne Blake Eaton, September 3rd, 1881

Editor's Notes

Thanks for yours of 11th enclosing memorandum of points on "Maxim infringement." Enclosed find clipping [not found; seems to be about why Maxim not running, due to "insufficiency of motive force"). "I know his trouble and would give him some points but as we have got them by hard experience I shall let him steal them in the same manner as he stole our lamp." Swan people have a bigger display than ours but of course not as good; has only the lamp and he has no idea of economy. I have no light to spare, owing to the dark red drapery in our rooms, which absorbs much light. Arranged to borrow Grammes to light other exhibits and related offices. "Our rooms are the sensation of the place as we have so many things to show that a man cannot get out inside of an hour."
