Abstract

[from Phila] "The machine ran elegantly on 1/4 and 1/2 loads today......" Outlines tomorrow's dyanamo tests [Franklin Inst]. ### Hwell wen to New York yesterday but is on deck today, and I have no doubt he would be very glad of a chance to object to our tests, but I'll take good care that he don't get a chance." ##"Only sleep every other day now, but there has been enough excitement to keep a fellow going. ##Tatum[?] today referred to these competitive tests as a pitched battle, and to the Edison armatures as the dead and wounded, which he considered as sort of an offset to our lamps. ##Marks said he should suspect a collusion if Howell and myself agreed on anything or if the committee agreed with each other. You have no idea what a red hot time we have had the past two weeks."
