[Z400AG], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Theodore Puskas, February 13th, 1878

Editor's Notes

Edison to T. Puskas: Your two favors of the 7th and 9th have just been rec'd. In regard to the New Receiver I had hoped to have it out before this time but find by experimenting that it is susceptible o9f much improvement. My men are now working at 4 or 5 new styles which will be far superior to those exhibited in England. In a short time I will be able to show you the Carbon Transmitter and the new reciver ready to use without a battery. Now while these refinements are being added itwould be poor policy to put ou the inferior insts such as I sent Gouraud. I will send you per Wednesdays steamer direct, several bottles of powdered carbon ready to be moulded into buttons. Adams should have some one broken in to make the buttons. Mr Fleury of Inssbruck is a perfectly competent person to act as agent in the countries named and I storngly advise you to procure his services. He has been recommended to me by strictly first class parties, and I have corresponded with him frequently during the past year. I will let you hear from me as soon as possible regarding the new R. Bailey speaks of returning next Saturday.
Supplied day
