Editor's Notes

Mr Edison and the various interests bearing his name have received nearly 8,000 sq ft at the Paris Expo' of 1889 & propose to show working models of all of Mr Edison's Insulations & illustrating the commercial application & development o the same.##One of the most complete departments will be that devoted to Electric Lighting & this will comprise a 3 wire Central Station Plant, Municipal Plan Historical Apparatus, Direct Current Transformer & Multipolar Dynamo, disc Dynamo Thermo Electric Generator & Motor, &c various apparatus & appliances connected with Incandescent Lighting together with Plans, Blue Prints, Statistical matter, Diagrams, Phonographs &d, &c. Mr Edison has expressed a desire to show complete plans, blue prints &c of some of the principal stations & Mr Beggs has kindly agreed to assist me in securing plans of the Pearl St., & Uptown Stations & will secure pictures of stations &c. I trust you will kindly send me the same of your new big station. Mr Edison says he wants to impress the over 19,00,000 people expected at the Exposition of the commercial perfection we have attained in the art in this country. I know you are very busy, but this is highly important & will redound to the advantage of everything Edison directly & indirectly. Hoping you will assist me in this matter as far as possible & assuring you that I will meet you in any way possible in the matter.
