Dear Sir:

We are advised by our Factory at Pittsburgh, that about April 4th, 1901 we delivered to you, through our Mr. Hamilton, a high tension testing set which was to be used by you in testing a generator.

We understand that this generator has now been shipped, and presume you are through with this testing set.We would therefore request you to have it returned to our factory at Pittsburgh, marking the same clearly as coming from you, and notifying us when shipment is made, sending us bill of lading.

Yours truly,

On March 22nd we wrote you in reference to testing set which was delivered to you by Mr. Hamilton of this Company, and ask you to make provision to return this testing set to our works at Pittsburgh.

We do not seem to find that we have received any reply to this letter, and would request that you take the matter up and advise us in reference to same at your early convenience.

Nikola Tesla, Esq.,
46 & 48 E. Houston St.,
New York, N.Y..

My dear Mr. Tesla:

Your letter May 9th regarding transformers reached me this morning. As I understand the matter it is as follows:

You have a two-phase machine with phases differing 90Ί. You wish to get high voltage from 4 transformers, two voltages differing 45Ί making what would be termed a four-phase outfit. It is important that the four high tension transformers be similar not only in construction but also in operation so that the drop in voltage when delivering current will be the same in each of the four.

After studying over the matter further I believe that the best results will be obtained from the method which I outlined to you when I saw you last week. Two axillary auto-transformers are to be provided. Each of these will have two windings which will be connected across opposite quadrants of the armature winding of the generator. The two windings in each of the two auto-transformers will therefore have the same phase although the windings will differ in potential. I give a diagram below which shows the theoretical arrangement of phases from which you will see that each of the four high voltage is symmetrical and similarly connected to the auto-transformers and to the generator. The two auto-transformers which are shown by parallel lines will be separate coils on a single core. ...

__________________________________________________ _________

...

The requirements will therefore be:

4- Transformers, 50 K.W. each, approximately 400 volts to 60,000 alts., to be wound for highest efficiency at overload and with as low copper loss in high tension circuit as is practicable.

2 – Auto transformers corresponding in size to transformers of the ordinary type of 60 K.W. each.

From your postscript it appears that you may be able to use 30,000 volts instead of 60,000 provided by the windings are insulated from the core for 60,000 volts. This would make the transformers slightly cheaper although the difference would not be very great.

I have studied further the plan which was proposed of having the primaries of two of the high tension transformers consist of two parts each of which would be connected to one of the generator phases. This however, would not be an operative connection.

I believe that this information will enable you to decide what course you desire to pursue.

CFS.
Very truly yours,

C.F. Scott
CHIEF ELECTRICIAN.

Dear Sir:

On April 15th you wrote us in reference to the high tension testing set which was delivered to you on or about April 4th,1901.

At the time you wrote us you advised us that you were unable to make the necessary tests on your generator and that you would need this testing set “for some time longer”.

As you can readily understand our Works are anxious to clear up this consignment account, and we therefore ask you to advise us if you cannot return the testing set to our Works. Your early advice will be appreciated.

TRANSFORMERS.

Dear Mr. Tesla:

You will recall that you came into my office during your recent visit at our Works, and made inquiry regarding some transformers which we are building for you, and which you ordered from us through Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Co. Mr Lange our manager of Works, has looked into the situation very carefully, and in view of your former connection with the Company, Mr. Lange has used extraordinary efforts to work in a day on these transformers, and he has directed me to advise you that he will complete two of your large transformers on August 15th and the other two large ones possibly by September 1st. The two small transformers we cannot complete until August 9th, which is the date which has already been given to you.

During your visit here, you were also talking with Mr. Lamme about the 10 KW rotary of special design for some particular work. We are writing to Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Co. in connection with this rotary, giving them figure upon same, and if you still have this matter in mind, you can consult them and place your order through them. It will take us 65 days to get out the 10 KW 125 v., 7200 alts. Rotary, such as you describe to us.

Ernst.
If I don't take care, they will start calling me bug-eye Mickey.

After the Westinghouse Company folder, what is left is mainly handwriting, the 2 RU Johnson and 1 Long Island folders. The Long Island folder will need some serious work, mainly with a publishing application, mix of graphics and texts. I'll have to check Scribus, since my workstations are setup with Linux Mint 17.3.

Have a nice weekend,

Laboratory,

Dear Mr. Tesla:

We have your letter of the 23rd inst., and note your inquiry regarding the rotating transformer of 10 K.W. capacity.

Your letter has been given the careful consideration of our Assistant Chief Engineer, Mr. Lamme, who advises that the best way of attacking the problem will be to build one of our standard 10 K.W. rotary converters as originally proposed. This will mean the shortest shipping date possible, as it would take us very much longer to follow out the scheme which you propose.

We wish to assure you, however, that if it is at all possible to cut down the 65 day date which we gave you on the 10 K.W. machine, every effort will be made to do so.

Very truly yours,

Some of my affairs are shaping themselves well and in a short time I expect to have more money than “to know what to do with”. I shall also begin to receive a steady income from two or three sources soon. But for the moment I am landed high and dry. The high potential and high frequency business was too much for my bank account. If this is agreeable, I will send you a formal order as requested.

My dear Sir:

referring to your letter of January 11th in the matter of the testing set; I have to advise you that in my absence your letter was replied to and the impression given that it was our desire to sell this piece of apparatus. As the matter stands, we are very much in need of the testing set for work which we have in progress, as it is impossible for us to make one and get it ready in time for the work which we have behind. It therefore becomes imperative that you return the one which we have lent you and which you have had for over two years.

If it is your desire to have a new one, we should prefer to enter your order and make one and send it to you. We are much in need at the present time of the one you have and will be greatly obliged if you will send it to Mr. R. L. Wilson, care of Interborough Power House, 59th Street, New York.

Dear Sir:

I have your letter of Dec. 20th in which you propose the use of induction motors for automobiles, and we would advise you that we consider the induction motor poorly adapted for this class of service. The use of induction motors involves the employment of an alternating current generator and this requires direct current for excitation, so that you make your outfit unduly complicated; further, an induction motor is essentially a constant speed motor, and the conditions of traction require a motor of variable speed characteristics, such as is found in the direct current series motor. In other words, we believe that this is about the worst condition that could be conceived for the use of induction motors. Our suggestion is for a device of this kind that you use direct current apparatus.

We shall be glad to be of any assistance to you in your study of the problem and shall be glad to hear from you further in the matter.

Yours truly,
L. A. Osborne,

My dear Mr. Scott:

I am installing for a manufacturing concern a device of my invention, and will require a three-phase induction motor about 60 H.P. to operate at 60 cycles, 220 volts and at as high a speed as possible. I see from the catalog of the General Electric Company that they have built such motors for speeds of 1800 revolutions. These are evidently four pole motors. What I would want to know from you is whether you could not furnish me a two pole motor which will then run 3600 revolutions. This would be much more suitable for my purpose. The order for the machine will be placed by the concern to whom I have referred.

I shall be very much obliged to you for a prompt answer.

With kind regards, believe me,

Very truly yours,

My dear Mr. Scott:

As I have decided to take the 60 H.P. motor about which I have already written, it will be necessary for me to get blueprint of same in order to make a plan for a new common base upon which will be coupled directly to your motor. I only want the outlines and the size of the shaft.

I shall see the order for this machine is placed forthwith. In the meantime, I shall be obliged to you if you will kindly have this print forwarded or else refer me to your catalogs from which I can gather the necessary information.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

Gentlemen:

I have been since some time designing machinery of a novel kind which is shortly to be installed. My associates would like to get a few turbines for this purpose.

Knowing that you are pioneers in this field, I write to know whether you have units of from 500 to 600 H.P. condensing, running at about 3000 revolutions or more. I would be very glad to recommend your machinery, knowing its excellency.

You will greatly oblige me by an early answer furnishing the necessary information.

Believe me,

My dear Mr. Tesla:

I find that the 50 H.P. induction motor for you, which is being built on our S.O.?340482, is somewhat out of the ordinary, as it requires new winding s adapting it for two poles. This special work, of course, requires time. Every effort will, however, be made to hurry the work through promptly and to keep things moving. At best it will be about the first of March before the motor can be shipped. We will endeavor to anticipate this date if practicable.

I have been keeping track of the motor in which you are interested, making inquiry with regard to it from week to week and seeing that the best attention is given to its progress. Mr. Nesbit, I understand, has been in touch with you from time to time with regard to this motor. When I wrote you before, I said the motor was scheduled to be completed the early part of March. It is now nearly ready for test and unless some mishap develops, it is expected that shipment can be made during the early days of the coming month.

I trust that the motor will do all that is expected of it and that the outcome may be satisfactory to all.

With best wishes,

My dear Mr. Scott:

It appears in starting the motor you have furnished to the Corliss Works, the armature became overheated and the soldering joints injured. That, at least seems to me the cause of the trouble, and it agrees with what your Mr. Nesbit told.

However, for a fifty horse power machine, the motor seems to be too small, and it might be preferable to use a larger frame, although I am sure it will not have to develop more than 50 H. P. This is a suggestion for the future. There has been another motor ordered of the same size, and you will greatly oblige me if you will rush it through same as the first. I do not think there is any necessity of having the larger frame on these two motors, but on future orders for the same capacity, it might be better to have the larger margin.

I hope that the necessary repairs will be made without delay,

With kind regards, believe me,

Sincerely yours,

MR. NIKOLA TESLA,
165 Broadway,
New York City.

My dear Mr. Tesla:

I have your letter of March 27th regarding the motor recently furnished to the Corliss Works and regrets very much to note that the combination of motor and fan is unsatisfactory. I have gone over the reports received from Mr. Nesbit with our engineers and it seems quite clear to us that the load upon the motor is excessive. This conclusion is drawn from several considerations:

1st – The motor accelerates slowly, apparently because the torque required by the load at low speed is just about equal to that develop by the motor. This indicates that the load is relatively large for the motor. More rapid acceleration could probably be secured by giving the motor a high initial voltage.

2Nd – The reading of 160 Amperes taken when the motor is running a fan, indicates a load upon the motor of approximately 67 H.P. (this suppose that the three phases of the supply circuit are symmetrical and supply equal current at equal voltage to the motor). Accepting this reading as a correct indication of the power to the motor, the motor is clearly overloaded.

3Rd – The temperature reported for one hour's run ...

__________________________________________________ ______

Westinghouse Co. – 0195

-2- 3.30.09.

... Is far greater than the temperatures taken on tests here at the Factory. Our tests were made at 40 H.P. and gave a maximum rise of 34 ° at the end of four hours. The temperature of 55 ° at the end of one hour, made running a fan, indicated a load considerably in excess of 50 H.P.

4th – The melting of the solder on the secondary indicates high losses and overload upon the motor. The secondary connections, however, are bolted and the ends of the secondary winding are then dipped in solder. The fact that the temperature has risen to the melting point and some of the solder has been thrown off has probably resulted in little or no damage to the secondary.

The best conclusions from the reports made are, therefore, to the effect that the motor is called upon to carry a load far in excess of that for which it was made. A regular report is being sent to Mr. Nesbit, who will inform you officially. As he will inform you, we are holding work on the second motor awaiting further instructions as to its size. It seems clear to us that it should be made larger, probably 60 or 70 H.P. We are not familiar here with the preliminary test on which the first estimate of the power required by the motor was made. You may find it best to investigate further as to the actual power required, if you do not feel justified in accepting the report of the test which has already been made.

Unless, however, you decide on further tests, it would ...

My dear Mr. Scott:

Mr. Nesbit has duly transmitted to me your letter of March 30th, for which I thank you.

The arguments you make would be of the order of these of Euclid, if they had not been based on erroneous assumptions. The figures given to you are entirely wrong, for I have myself taken readings and have found that the maximum current in each phase is less than fifty amperes. The figures given to you were evidently obtained
I would like you to ignore the reports until I have myself had an opportunity to make conclusive tests of which I shall write you. In the meanwhile, please do not delay the work on the second motor which is intended for a different purpose.

Yours very truly,

I have already written to Mr. Scott that there is no necessity for delaying the work on the other motor. On the contrary I shall be much obliged to you if you will see that it is turned out as quickly as possible.

My dear Mr. Scott:

As I anticipated, the reports you received in regard to power consumption of motor furnished to the Corliss Works were entirely wrong. The motor only took forty-three amperes in each circuit, and on the basis of the meager data furnished by you in regard to the power factor and efficiency at loads far below the normal I found that the watts were only amounting to 19 or 20 H. P. It could not have been much more because of motor turning 3510 revolutions per minute while performing the work. As I am uncertain in regard to the efficiency and power factor, I would be much obliged to you if you will kindly supply the necessary information by furnishing efficiency and power curves. I understand, of course, that this is a new type of motor which you have not extensively investigated, but you could give me fairly accurate curves for my own personal use, basing yourself on the results with a type of motor closely resembling that one. The power factor at full load is very remarkable indeed.

C. F. S. No. 2.


... I had no opportunity while in Providence of making careful measurements, but I notice that one of the circuit was considerably excelling the other two in current and electromotive force. It is also an undeniable fact that the motor heats up more than it ought, 46 ° C above temperature of room after 3 1/2 hrs. Run. This might possibly have been due to the slow starting of the motor, which consumes fully three minutes. Your suggestion of raising the electromotive force in order to quicken the attainment of anychronism is not practicable, but you might get us a special starting box which will accomplish the same thing.

Please let us know as soon as possible what you think of the matter.

MR. NIKOLA TESLA,

My dear Mr. Tesla:

I have your letter of April 8th regarding the motor furnished the Corliss Works, which was built on our Stock Order No. 340842. You say that the motor took only 43 amperes in each circuit, and later on you say you notice that one of the circuits was considerably excelling the other both in current and e.m.f. This shows an unbalanced condition of some sort, and the fact that the e.m.f., as well as the current, is unbalanced, makes it seem probable that the difficulty is not in the motor but in the supply circuit. If the several phases are unequal in voltage, then, of course, the currents are unequal, and the motor is not working under normal conditions. This may be the factor causing the low rate of acceleration, and also in causing the high temperature.

I understand that the auto-starter which was supplied with the motor can be connected for different starting voltages, so that it will probably be a simple matter to apply a higher voltage during the starting ...

P.S. - The foregoing was dictated on April 9th, but has inadvertently been delayed until the 12th.

I received this morning your letter of April 10th, in which you say that the reading of 160 amperes which was reported to us and referred to in my letter of March 30th must evidently be a mistake. I have forwarded Mr. Nesbit copies of an approximate performance curve on the motor. I trust that you and he will be able to lay out a program of tests which will locate the difficulty, as the information at hand is certainly conflicting and unsatisfactory.

The motor which you forwarded to the Corliss Works has been shipped to you for repair, in accordance with the suggestion of your Mr. Nesbitt of this city. I shall be very much obliged to you if you will be kind enough to inform me of the trouble you have found on the machine and also ship the same in good shape as soon as possible to the American & British Mfg. Co. Providence, R. I.

Yours very truly

Dear Mr. Nesbitt:

I have just received from the American & British Mfg. Co. of Providence, R. I., letter dated yesterday, stating that the motor has not yet reached them. They are very much put out and have requested me to take this matter up with you immediately. Will you be kind enough to let me know whether the motor has been shipped and when.

I shall also be very much obliged to you if you will take the matter of the first motor up with the works, and inform me in regard to the nature of the trouble your experts have found.

Yours very truly,

My Dear Mr. Nesbitt:

In looking up your letter of April 1st, 1909, giving results of tests with the first motor, and also your blue print #29696 of efficiency and power curves, I can find no indication how the torque varies from starting until normal speed is attained. The motor speed curve is drawn as falling from left to right and if it would continue further to the right to include very low speeds, the torque would be apparently very great. I cannot reconcile the diagram in this respect with my experience, and assume that the curve would not hold good if the speed would be brought down below 3200 revolutions. I would like you to inform me whether I am right.

Your letter states that the “pull out torque” is 130 lbs. This term must have been introduced for shop convenience, and I only infer that it means the maximum torque which is obtained just prior to the falling out of the motor or radical departure from nearly synchronous speed. It may take place at something like 3200 revolutions.

I would like you to tell me, if possible, what the approximate torque is at various low speeds when the motor is started through the medium of the box. This would be desirable for me to know, as it would assist me in so proportioning the machine to be driven that it will suit best the conditions.

On this occasion, I would like to remind you that I am awaiting from you ...

MR. N. Tesla,
165 Broadway,
New York City.

Dear Sir:

Referring to correspondence we have had in regard to 50 hp. Motor which the American & British Mfg. Co. returned to our factory for repairs we quote below report received from the factory on this motor.

“Our inspection of this machine indicated that the machine has been considerably overheated and overloaded; alas that the bearings have been given very little attention.

The bearings were found very much scored and have been sufficiently hot to cause the metal to run. This condition is undoubtedly due to insufficient oiling. The rotor of this machine has been throwing solder due to its being overheated. This, however, has not had any detrimental effect upon the primary winding.

We did not find that there is anything the matter with the auto starter; the contact of same was slightly scorched, but not enough to affect its operation.

We have rebabbitted the bearings, resoldered the rotor, cleaned up and put in operative condition, and we feel confident that these repairs, the motor is in as good condition as when it was first shipped.”

You will note from the above report that this motor has evidently been overloaded which caused trouble and very little attention was paid to the bearings and in order to get this machine to operate properly, you undoubtedly are aware that it requires some attention and we feel assured that if, the machine is given some attention when returned and not overloaded as it was ...

Gentlemen:

I am much obliged to you for the information conveyed in your favor of June 18th. However, it may interest you to know that in careful break tests which were made at the works of the American & British Mfg. Co. at Providence, R. I., it was found that while the motor was capable of performing from 50 to 55 H. P., the product of the power and efficiency factors was .42, in other words, the motor took a considerable greater current than that given in your power and efficiency curves. This may have been possibly due to the melting out of the solder on the rotor.

We shall require soon larger motors of the same type, and I hope that you will be able to furnish them quicker than the first ones.

Yours very truly,

Referring to your letter of the 25th and our conversation of even date, I was unable to get hold of my associates to come to a conclusion in regard to the order. I have no doubt that the price of the motor will be satisfactory to them but the trouble will be the long delay in shipment. I do not know whether they will find it possible to defer the installation of the outfit so long a time. I will communicate with you as soon as I get a chance to see the parties.

MR. Nicola Tesla,

My Dear Mr. Tesla:

Referring to your letter of the 25th inst., we have just received advice from Pittsburgh that the next larger frame than the one furnished you with the 50 H>P> motors would be our #8-B “HF” frame, ans this frame would accommodate the 75 H.P., three-phase, 220 volt, 60 cycles, 2 poles motor, the price of which, without bedplate or pulley, but including started, would be $369 net, f.o.b. cars East Pittsburgh.

It would be necessary to use this same frame in case you wanted even the 60 H.P. motor, so it would be just as well to order a 75 H.P., as it would cost no more.

They give us shipment of 75 days, although we think this might be cut down to possibly 60 days. This long shipment is, of course, on account of the excessive speed it is necessary to change the construction very materially from standard speed motors.

Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. Nesbitt:

We are considering the use of larger induction motors of the high speed type you have furnished to us, and I write you to ascertain whether you could furnish them in larger sizes up to say about 2500 H. P. I suppose there will be considerable difficulty in producing rotors to withstand the centrifugal stresses, as the diameter of the armature is increased. Please put yourself in communication with the Engineering Department and furnish me with the desired information as soon as possible. At any rate, I wish to know what is the largest size of such motor that you could furnish.

My Dear Mr. Tesla:

Referring to your letter of the 9th inst., Pittsburgh state that they once had a request for a 750 H.P., 2-pole motor, but it was so special and risky a proposition that they refused to bid on it. Although it might be possible to build such a motor, it would be a very risky proposition, and we would not care to build anything over, say, 200 H.P., 2-pole, 60 cycle. In some special case we might consider building slightly over 200 H.P. size, but we should not care to build very much higher.

Dear Sir:

We are pleased to advise you that we shipped to the N. Y. Edison Co., I believe on the 10th, by express collect, the 50 KVA generator and have charged it to loan and replacement account. Pittsburg suggested that since it was for some temporary testing, we could loan it to you for, say, two months, and at the end of this time in case you could make use of it permanently, you could purchase it from us. If, however, you will not have any further use for it then, it can be returned to us and we will make only a slight charge covering the use of same. Of course, if you like, you can buy this outright, but we thought that since it was such a temporary affair we would not expect you to buy the machine unless you found that you could use it permanently.

Kindly advise us if the above arrangement will be satisfactory to you.

Referring to your inquiry of a day or two ago, we would advise you that the efficiency of 50 KVA, 1200 RPM, generator is as follow:

1/2 load..........87%
3/4 load..........90%
Full load.........91%

These efficiencies are based on power factor 100% and by drawing a curve up you could find any other efficiencies above full load or any under 1/2 load in case you should want anything at these extreme points.

My dear Mr. Tesla:

Some time ago you told me to see you in a few weeks and you would know whether you cared to use the 50 KW generator any further or not. In order to keep our files to keep our files up to date, we would be glad to know whether you have any further use for this machine. If so, you are of course at perfect liberty to keep it until you are through with same. If you are through with same, however, we will not expect you to buy it but simply pay us for the expense we would be put to in putting same in salable condition.

Yours very truly,

My Dear Mr. Nesbit:

Replying to your kind letter of yesterday just received, I am still carrying on tests at the plant of the New York Edison Company and am naturally much interested in the same, not only on account of the scientific, but practical importance of the results. I have greatly appreciated the courtesy of the Westinghouse Company and would not be satisfied to return the machine, although you give me this privilege. The matter will be taken up with my associates and as soon as I have a conference with them, I will communicate with you.

Yours very truly,

My dear Mr. Tesla:

Referring to your favor of Nov. 22Nd, Pittsburg has recently written me inquiring as to how long you would likely require the 50 KVA. Generator lent you about a year ago. I do not know whether you have completed all the tests which you were going to make or not, but would be pleased to hear from you at your convenience as to whether or not you are through with this machine.

Wishing you a happy new year, I am,

Yours very truly,

My Dear Mr. Nesbit:

Your letter has reminded me of the service which the Westinghouse Company, through your offices, rendered me a year ago, and which I greatly appreciate. I am still carrying out experiments but could return the generator at once, if I did not think that my associates would prefer to purchase the same. One of them is now in Mexico and I cannot get hold of him immediately, but as soon as he returns, which will probably be at the end of the coming week, I shall take the subject up with him and have no doubt that he will follow my suggestion of purchasing the dynamo.

Today happening to be my New Year, I take the opportunity of reciprocating heartily in your good wishes.

Yours very truly,

Your letter of the 4th inst. Reminds me of another unfulfilled obligation. I should have informed you that two of my associates had gone down to Mexico and after considerable difficulty in getting out of the country have finally managed to start on their return journey to New York where they are to arrive in a few days. As soon as I see them I shall take up the matter of the generator with them and will communicate with you at once.

I would much prefer to retain your dynamo as I look upon it as a sort of historical exhibit which may in time to come, be of value.

Assuring you that I greatly appreciate the service rendered by the Westinghouse Company and yourself, personally, I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Your favor of May 7th finds me under the same conditions as regards to the disposition of the machine which you kindly placed at my disposal. I look at it now rather as an historical exhibit which I am anxious to preserve and the matter would have been attended to already had it not been that my associate to whom I referred in previous correspondence, on his return from Mexico had to go abroad and will not be back for two or three weeks. We had hardly time to meet and discuss important business matters.

If you will permit me I shall retain the machine longer, being confident that I can arrange for its purchase. It would hardly be fair to return it now after it had been in service for so long a time.

With thanks for your past courtesies, I remain,

I was very glad to receive your letter of June eighteenth and to learn that you are still following my work with interest.

As regards my latest invention, the turbine, I believe that I have been fortunate for the new principle will unquestionably play an important part in many industries in the near future. I am now concentrating on a number of applications in which extreme lightness and high performance is of paramount significance. No turbine or engine of any kind so far devised can compete with mine in this field. You should not be at all surprised if some day you see me fly from New York to Colorado Springs in a contrivance which will resemble a gas stove and weigh almost as much.

Dear Sir:

A biography of Mr. Westinghouse which will present the man and his work from the standpoint of those who knew him best is under way. Mr. C.A.Terry is Chairman of the Committee on Preparation and Col. H.G.Prout is Secretary and Editor. The biography will be treated by episodes and topics rather than as a chronological history. The material is to be supplied by those who have special knowledge and will write of the things they know. These contributions may be of such length and in such form as suits the inclination ans convenience of the writer. The material will be taken by Col.Prout, whose editorial ability and whose acquaintance with Mr. Westinghouse peculiarly fit him for constructing the final work from the contributions which he receives.

This is an opportune time to get from those who were close to Mr. Westinghouse, a fairly complete record of their contact with him. The fuller this is, particularly with regard to those personal incidents which are not known to others, the better; it will constitute a file of personal history which it would be impossible to obtain in a few years from now. His personality impressed itself most – much more than the things he did. Such a record will be valuable as a private record, even though it may be too much to publish. The Committee is, therefore, hoping to secure many contributions toward the biography in the way of personal knowledge and recollection of Mr. Westinghouse – either facts and incidents, or opinion and appreciation. It is better to contribute too much than too little.

I happen to be the member of the Committee most closely connected with the Electric Company, and Col.Prout has asked me to take up the securing of all the material that I can. Hence this direct request to you, and I am sure you will be glad to do your part.

Please send your contribution to me, Room 202, East Pittsburgh Works, or drop me a line saying that you will do so a little later. If the material is typewritten and can be sent in duplicate, it will be appreciated.

Very truly yours,

CFS:CME Chas. F. Scott,

A biography of Mr. Westinghouse would be most welcome indeed. His personality was altogether unusual and his success phenomenal. To publish such a book at this time is an excellent idea.

Dear Mr. Herr :

The enclosed may interest you in connection with the subject I discussed with Mr. Scott Saturday before last.I naturally anticipate that you have had little time to devote to wireless development and it will probably be news to you that, with the exception of non-essentials, nothing is employed in the art except devices of my invention. But the plants are ridiculously inefficient owing to the fact that the experts are completely misled by the Hertz-wave theory.

As you may see from the papers, the General Electric Company are evidently endeavoring to realize my “World-System” but they will never succeed with any such apparatus as they propose to install.

If you are desirous to inaugurate a wireless system a century ahead of that in use at present, I can put you in the position to do so, provided that your company is willing to come to an understanding with me on terms decidedly more generous than those under which they acquired my system of power transmission thirty years ago.

Yours sincerely,

We recently asked you for a photograph of yourself for use in the memoirs that our Mr. Lamme is preparing. In response you sent us a very handsome portrait study of yourself, which has now been framed and hung in one of our offices. I regret to say, however, that inasmuch as this as taken through a soft focus lens, it is not suitable for reproduction in the form of a half tone, and I am wondering if you could let us have an ordinary photograph of yourself for this purpose.

I regret having to trouble you in this matter, but we are very anxious to have your photograph in these memoirs and we shall appreciate anything you can do for us.

My dear Mr. Tesla:

I have just received a report from our Engineers, after reviewing Prof. Scott's report of his interview with you.

Our situation in Radio Work has somewhat changed and is not now needing any vigorous development policy. We are, therefore, for the present abating some of our development activities; and, as your situation is one requiring great deal of developmental work, there will be no possibility of our going ahead in a way that would concern you within the near future.

I will be glad to keep your situation in mind; and, should ours change, I will communicate with you.

I thought it best to let you know this frankly so that you would not be under a misapprehension of our position.

Yours very truly,

E. M. Herr, Esq.,
Pres., Westinghouse Electric & Mfg. Co.,
Pittsburgh, Pa.

My dear Mr. Herr :

Many years ago I went to Pittsburgh with the view of purchasing from your company the power equipment for my wireless “World System” plant which I was constructing. On that occasion I met your directors and other prominent officials and, after a discussion on the development of my alternating system, one of them remarked, “ You may be sure, Mr. Tesla, that nothing will be turned down that you may put before the Westinghouse Company.” I have carried this conviction over since, knowing that men of that stature usualy feel a sense of obligation towards a pioneer who lays the foundation to their successful business. This is also the reason why in my conference with Mr. Scott I did not think it necessary to enlarge on numerous inventions and subjects requiring special knowledge or to make any particular effort of impressing him favorably.

In view of this I was not quite prepared for your letter of November 11th in which you define frankly your position.

In the first place, I was astonished and keenly disappointed that the matter should have been put before your engineers as I would never submit anything to them except complete plans, thoroughly worked out every detail. My understanding was that you would not consult anybody beside Mr. Scott.
