Abstract

Got yours of 2/1; Rosselle says he wants a plant for Lake George of about 150 lights, possibly just 100; he called last summer at 65 5th Ave. about buying a dynamo, but was treated with such arrogance he abandoned the idea; Westinghouse was one of his guests during the summer and said he would get him a plant for next year; Rosselle told Westinghouse he would put it in the Arlington too, but has no money to pay for it; he told me he'll wait for central station, wanted 700 lights, but has no boiler or engine to run them.###Couldn't describe the man he talked with at 65; give me a description of who you think it was and I'll ask Rosselle.###Westinghouse doesn't propose furnishing him with an Edison plant###Miller likes his light and could be got to increase his plant.
