Abstract

Two drafts of a letter or essay; complains that even though the results of the Franklin Institute tests on incandescent lamps were subject to "general distrust," the Edison Co. has used the report of the tests to mislead the public in advertisements about the durability of lamps; says example of such an ad is enclosed [missing]; says the course the Edison Co. has pursued "is identical with a plan proposed by Mr. Upton" at a meeting a Marks' house; most of the readers of "your Journal" [Electrical Journal] understand to some degree the facts in relation to the failure of my lamps to stand the 1000 hour test; but exact state of affairs cannot be understood from letters incorporated in the report. [Appears to be a draft letter to the Electical Journal]
