Since it has been done I would appreciate it as a favor, if not justice to me, if you will kindly forward me a copy of this report for my instruction and guidance.

When I learned that the Westinghouse Company had entered the wireless field, I took it for granted that they did it with the same spirit and resolve they displayed in other undertakings in which they outdistanced their competitors. The art as now practiced embodies only minor and unessential improvements of detail over my old devices and offers small chances for the exercise of your powers, but I have a system new in all features – transmitters, receivers, static and interference preventers, multiplex apparatus, methods of control, and other particulars. It is a century ahead of the present and would ensure for you undisputed supremacy in a very short time. The whole world is now commited to ridiculously inefficient and expensive installations which will all have to be torn down and reconstructed as soon as my system is put in operation, for the plants will not cost more than ten percent of the present ones and will be ever so much more effective and superior in all commercial respects. Just to mention one of the improvements,I may refer to my basic patent #1,119,732 of Dec.1, 1914, copy of which I gave to Mr. Scott. This invention alone would make it impossible for other wireless concerns to compete with you; moreover, you could accomplish results which are entirely unattainable with the apparatus now in use no matter what capital is spent on it.

The wireless transmission of energy is my life work and I have devoted over twenty-five years to a close theoretical and experimental study of all its phases and possibilities, and feel sure that you could take advantage of a wonderful opportunity. Perhaps it may be practicable to harmonize our views and proceed for the first time being along the path of least resistance if your present policy renders such a course imperative.

Trusting to hear from you at your earliest convenience, I remain

Very truly yours,

My dear Mr. Herr :

I feel prompted to drop you another line in acknowledgment of your letter of the 16th ult. In which you say again:”Ibis redibis non morieris in bello”. Leaving me in doubt whether the comma precedes or follow 'non'. However, I think my inference is correct, that the Westinghouse Company are not tied up with other concerns.

You will understand, of course, that my interest is merely in an independent development with you. I have the inventions which make the present installments very much out of date and if I can not achieve my ends, with your cooperation, then I must settle upon another course without letting the 'grass grow under my feet'.

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir:

Please refer to your letter of the 8th instant addressed to Westinghouse Electric Company.

I have made search through old records and find that the Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing Company was dissolved July 13, 1889.

Our Company did not own all of the stock of the Tesla Company, but was interested in it through stock ownership. The company was liquidated through Trustees, so presumably each stockholder received an equable share in the settlement.

As the dissolution occurred July 13, 1889, I am unable to trace the connection between any possible claim Mr. Stevens may have had and the transaction which purports to have been undertaken about 14 years ago.

I regret that we are unable to give you a definite information such as you desire.

Very truly yours,

Gentlemen:

Enclosed is a preprint of an advertisement running in the October issue of “Scientific American”, “Forbes Magazine” and The Nation's Business and which will also appear in the November 19 issue of the Saturday Evening Post.

The electrification of powerful naval vessels has been progressing for years with phenomenal results but this forecast on the electrification of our merchant marine constitutes a message of utmost importance to every ship owner and shipbuilder.

We suggest you give this advertisement thoughtful consideration as it may point the way for you, in your business, to profit by electrification of new or existing vessels.

Yours very truly,

J. C. M. Livinston?
Manager, Department of Publicity.

My dear Mr. Terry:

Referring to our telephone conversation of even date, I fear that it will not be possible for Mr. Herr, however able a man he may be, to form a definite opinion without much fuller information and it is desirable that I should be given an opportunity for discussing the subject with him and his engineers.

As I have stated to you and Mr. Osborne at our last meeting, I feel absolutely certain that my turbine will defeat by a large margin any other prime mover in commercial competition and will be the mean of saving millions of dollars annually in a dozen different fields. I would not enter in any agreement, no matter how attractive, if it involves a question of any experimenting whatever. What I want is to produce at once marketable apparatus and if the Westinghouse Company will co-operate to this end on some reasonable basis, they only need to indicate what they require. Most of my energies during the past few years have been devoted to the development of these turbines and I am prepared to furnish designs of commercial machines which will operate exactly as specified and be economically superior to any of the existing types.

Yours very truly.

My dear Mr. Terry:

I learned yesterday from an engineer that the Westinghouse Company are going to erect a broadcasting station in this neighborhood. If you are in the position to give me just an idea of the general character of this plant and of the sum appropriated for its construction, I may be able to make you a very attractive proposition.

A plant embodying certain important inventions and discoveries of mine could be put up in a short time for much less money than the Company is likely to spend and would be sufficient for telephonic broadcasting over the whole world. I am anticipating that a few such plants will be built in the near future in foreign countries.

H. T. Herr Esq,.
Vice-President, Westinghouse Elec. & Mfg. Co.,

Dear Mr. Herr,

When we met the first time I had in mind to propose to the Westinghouse Company the manufacture of a special type of my gas turbine by which considerable savings can be effected in the existing steam-plants. Later, however, I convinced myself that the big undertakings would be delayed unless I formed immediately a powerful alliance. As I feel sure that no other type of prime mover will have the faintest chance in competition with my turbine and that an immense revolution in the production of power is imminent, I am anxious to reach some definite conclusion as soon as possible.

Under separate cover I have mailed you today a statement, of a general character, which I thought useful before discussing the special performances.

Believe me,

Yours sincerely,

My dear Mr. Tripp:

Please accept my thanks for your kind letters of the 10th and 14th instants and the courtesies accorded to me at your office. You are a man after my own heart and I would have been delighted if these inventions of mine had given you an opportunity for the exercise of your genius and energy.

The decision your engineers have reached is most regrettable for I feel quite sure that in a little while they will find themselves in an extremely uncomfortable position. My gas turbine constitutes a revolutionary advance in mechanics and is bound to supersede all other types of prime movers. When I brought out the induction motor I had similar experience. Two great experts declared it to be of trifling value and even when I came to Pittsburgh with my machines I met opposition. Only Mr. Albert Schmidt and Charles F, Scott who assisted me had faith in it, but Mr. Westinghouse's confidence in the ultimate success was always as firm as the rock of Gibraltar.

With renewed thanks and expressions of high regards, I remain

Yours sincerely,

H. T. Herr Esq,. V-P.,

Philadelphia, Pa.

Dear Mr. Herr,

I am forwarding under enclosure copy of a British patent which I have just received relating to an improvement of great industrial importance. Just to illustrate, in the operation of the 60,000 K.W. unit furnished by you to the Interborough Rapid Transit Co., an installment of my turbine will result in an annual saving of about $300,000. There are approximately 14-1/2 million K. W. In the central plants of the United States and conservatively estimated, - $75,000,000e saved every year in the cost of fuel. Besides, the equipment will be much cheaper and more reliable.

The combination described in the patent is of specific value on vessels of war as well as commerce because of the perfect reversibility of my turbine. In some of the battleship, for instance, there are used two high pressure, two low pressure and two cruising turbines distributed on four shafts, each of which is equipped with a reversing turbine. In such a case, the two high pressure, two cruising and four reversing turbines could be done away with and a saving in the cost of fuel would be approximately fifty percent. Of course, with my gas turbine the results will be much better.

Yours sincerely,

Referring to our conversation in New York respecting your patents Nos. 1,209,359 and 1,402,025 and referring to the letter of March 4th from your secretary, we have, after careful consideration, concluded that we are not likely to have sufficient occasion for using the invention of your frequency meter patent No. 1,402,025 to warrant our acquiring rights from you under the patent. I understand that you propose to grant rights only under the frequency meter patent and not under the earlier patent, which seems to dominate the situation. We would not, in any event, be interested in acquiring rights under the one patent.

Thanking you for bringing the matter to our attention, I am,

Dear Mr. Terry:

Under enclosure find patent specifications relating to my speed indicator and frequency meter, also a copy of letter I received from Mr. Schairer from which it appears that the situation was not fully explained to him.

My company owns the rights under both patents except that we have given to the Waltham Watch Company the exclusive privilege on the first-named invention for the specific use of indicating the translatory speed of a vehicle, and that we have also sold them the right to use the frequency meter on locomotives.

The proposition I made implied of course that you would get full protection under both patents and, if you wanted to manufacture the speed indicator also, we would be glad to include it in the agreement. This, however, would be manifestly out of your line but the frequency meter ...

... is an electrical instrument, there is a great opportunity for it, and I feel sure that if the manufacture is pushed, a business of considerable volume would be built up in a short time. Although the device is popularly called “frequency meter” it is really a speed indicator which is operated through the medium of electrical, instead of mechanical, connections. This is a very big field and almost untouched as the only instrument available now for the purpose is one introduced by the General Electric Company, which is inadequate and very expensive. Mr. Schairer is evidently under the impression that we were offering you merely a limited right under a patent dominated by another one. I hardly need state that we would never contemplate doing business with a concern of the stature of the Westinghouse Company on that kind of a basis.

I am thoroughly familiar with the present situation in this branch of the art and confident that if you will give a trial to this invention you will be gratified with the results. The expense involved is trifling and we could be ready for the market within two months. As we are very anxious to begin the introduction in view of the extraordinary success the Waltham Watch Company is achieving with the speed indicator. I shall be obliged to you for the immediate consideration of this matter.

Mr. Schairer happens to be in my office today and I have gone over the matter with him. While he has understood from his conversation with you and from the letters written by your secretary that the proposed license would be only under the later patent, yet even if both patents were included along the lines indicated in your letter of March 30th, we feel that it would not be advisable for the Westinghouse Company to undertake to manufacture these instruments at this time.

Gentlemen:

I have noted with amazement, from a published article with illustrations, that you have adopted essential features of my transmitter, U.S. Patent No. 1,119,732, in the construction of your new Wireless Broadcasting Plant. This invention was offered to you twice, by myself and through Professor C. F. Scott, and your repeated refusal astonished me all the more as the wonderful results attainable by my transmitter must have been known to your engineers. We decided progress in broadcasting will be made until it is generally adopted.

It would be painful to me to have to resort to legal proceedings against a great corporation where business is largely founded on my inventions and I trust that you will recognize the advantage of an amicable understanding.

Yours very truly,

Gentlemen:

My associates are still awaiting definite reply to our communication of January 29th. It seems to them that a protracted investigation of the subject is unnecessary, in view of what has passed.

Your Mr. Terry is a capable and well informed attorney and the patent files are within his reach. Also, your intelligent technical staff could not have proceeded without an examination of the prior art.

I know that the results with my transmitters will astonish the world, and we are unanimous in our desire to avoid interference with the operation of your plant and cause annoyance to your directors. But if you treat the matter lightly we shall have to resign ourselves regretfully to the only course open to us.

Yours very truly,

Replying to yours of the 14th instant, I would appreciate it if you would specify which station you claim to be an infringement of your patent and in what particular. For your information, if it is of any interest to you, we are not using any cage type down-leads, but are using 1 1/4 inch copper tubing.

Gentlemen:

Replying to your letter of yesterday, it appears that you have lately employed my transmitters, without license, and obtained results by them which have won you the leading position among broadcasters.

In our communication of January 29th reference was made specifically to your plant with an antenna system as outlined in the New York Sun Radio Section of Saturday, January 25th. The circuits shown there are clearly covered by Claim 1 of my patent No. 1,119,732 and also by others, among which may be cited 4 and 6. The curvature of the conductors you employ is sufficient to insure a great resonant rise without appreciable leakage of the charge, and as you have also done away with metallic supports I anticipate that you will achieve an exceptional success. But, surely, you must admit that your infringement of my claims is too palpably evident to be denied. The cage type down-leads mentioned in your letter, unless the capacity elements be arranged as specified in my patent, are one of the worst forms.

I consider that my transmitter offers a simple remedy for statics and interference in general as well as for various other defects impeding the progress of the art, and I am perfectly confident that it will have to be adopted in all transmitting stations.

Our first communication was made in a friendly spirit and in contemplation of the possibility of an amicable understanding which would be greatly to your financial advantage. But unless you meet us promptly in this endeavor we shall have to take steps to protest ourselves.

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir:

Acknowledging receipt of your letter of the 17th instant, we do not believe that we are infringing any claims of the patent you have called to our attention.

I assume from your letters that your patent is for sale and, if so, would be glad to have your idea as to what price you would set upon it. I feel constrained, however, to say that we would not be interested in giving more than a nominal amount. You are at liberty, of course, to take this matter up with the Radio Corporation.

Under these circumstances, we are confident that the life of the patent will be extended. However, so far only your company has trespassed on our rights, probably because your engineers think a little faster than the others.

We are very desirous of avoiding friction, and if you will meet us in a friendly spirit would be glad to discuss the subject with you, feeling confident that some conclusion might be reached which would be greatly to your advantage and fair to us.

Gentlemen:

Supplementary to our letter of June 4, 1930, in regard to which I conferred with your Mr Beam, we beg to call to your attention the following claims of my patent No. 1,119,732 which we offered to you repeatedly in vain prior to your infringement.

1. “As a means for producing great electrical activities, a resonant circuit having the outer boundaries, which are charged to a high potential, arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature so as to prevent leakage of the oscillation charge, substantially as set forth.”

You employ, as a means for producing great electrical activities, a resonant circuit, or circuits, with the outer conducting boundaries, which are charged to a high potential, arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature (as cylinders and spheres). You thereby prevent the leakage of the oscillating charge and secure the immense advantages of the invention described in the patent.

2. “In apparatus for the transmission of electrical energy a circuit connected to ground and to an elevated terminal and having its outer boundaries, which are subject to high tension, arranged, in surfaces of large radii of curvature substantially as, and for the purpose described.”

You use apparatus for the transmission of electrical energy exactly as characterized in this claim and for the purpose ...

... described. It is immaterial whether the connection to the ground is established directly or inductively, as these are well recognized equivalents.

4. “As a mean for transmitting electrical energy to a distance through the natural media a grounded resonant circuit, comprising a part upon which the oscillations are impressed and another for raising the tension, having its outer conducting boundaries on which a high tension charge accumulates arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature, substantially as described.”

This important plan is carried out to the letter in the apparatus you employ for the transmission of electrical energy to a distance through the natural media. You have such resonant circuit, or circuits, each comprising a part upon which oscillations are impressed and another (coil and terminal above) for raising the tension, having its outer conducting boundaries on which a high tension charge accumulates arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature( cylinders and spheres). The advantages of this form over antennae of ordinary construction, you used before, are enormous.

6. “A circuit comprising a part upon which oscillations are impressed and another part for raising the tension by resonance, the latter being supported on places of low electric density and having its outermost conducting boundaries arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature, as set forth.”

Each of the circuits you employ is literally as described in this claim. Every one of them has a part upon which oscillations are impressed and another for raising the tension by resonance, the latter being supported on places of low electrical density and having its outermost conducting boundaries arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature (cylinders and spheres). ...

... This is one of my most important inventions as it enables, even with conductors of not more than one or two inches in diameter to produce effects very many times more intense than those obtainable by ordinary antennae, and with far better economy.

7. “In apparatus for the transmission of electrical energy without wires a grounded circuit the outer conducting elements of which have a great aggregate area and are arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature so as to permit the storing of a high charge at a small electrical density and prevent loss through leakage, substantially as described.”

This claim also accurately recites the features of the apparatus you employ for the purpose set forth. In each of the circuits the outer conducting elements have a great aggregate area and are arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature (cylinders and spheres) so as to permit the storing of a high charge at a small electric density and prevent loss through leakage. In a circuit of this kind a relatively enormous charge can be stored without streamer formation and for this reason as well as others it is tremendously effective. What is still more important, it enables the transmission of almost unlimited amount of power with apparatus of very moderate dimensions and cost.

10. “A grounded resonant transmitting circuit having its outer conducting boundaries arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature in combination with an elevated terminal of great surface supported at points of low electric density, substantially as described.”

You employ exactly this kind of device, namely, a resonant transmitting circuit having its outer conducting boundaries arranged in surfaces of large radii of curvature in combination with an elevated terminal of great surface (cylinder and sphere) supported at points of low electric density.

All these claims read precisely as though they had been ...

__________________________________________________ ___________

... drawn expressly to cover the apparatus you employ. My patent illustrates a transmitter of greater power but embodying the identical features of construction. I think however that you have infringed also other claims of the patent.

We have offered you this revolutionary invention repeatedly, virtually on your own terms and you did not want it. You have preferred to take it by force. You have robbed me of the credit which is my due and injured me and my associates seriously in business. Instead of showing a willingness to adjust this matter with us in an equitable manner, which would involve a relatively small sum of money, you say that you want to fight, expecting probably to delay final decision for years. You reject settlement out of court, even after I suggest it, proposing your Mr. H. Westinghouse as arbiter. You may think that you can secure an advantage by such tactics, but we doubt it, and certainly they will not meet with public approval when all the facts are published.

Dear Mr. Tesla:

Since my visit to you last week, I've been thinking over the many things you told me and have discussed with one of our Research specialists the general proposal of creating rays of the kind you mentioned to me. I found him quite skeptical, so much so in fact that I hesitate to propose Mr. Merrick your suggestion of a six months' advance payment to enable you to file patents.

Would it not be possible to give us some easy steps, in a test way, of some of the principles involved, so we can check them and in that way get confirmation of your theories, so that we “doubting Thomases” could have something more tangible with which to work.

Yours very truly,

High Speed Squirrel Cage Motors for
Direct Connection to Centrifugal Blowers
___________________________________

After talking with you yesterday on the telephone I immediately wired our East Pittsburgh factory and I am just now in receipt of preliminary information from them which may be of some assistance to you in laying out this motor with the Connersville Centrifugal Blower.

We are giving you information on three ratings of motors: 1,000, 1,250, and 2,000 hp., all 2300 volts, 3 phase, 60 cycle, 3600 r.p.m.. The 1,000 h.p. motor will be on the 2-36-17 frame, the 1,250 h.p. on the 2-36-21 frame and the 2,000 h.p. on the 2-36-27 frame.

The approximate overall dimensions of these motors will be as follows:

H.P.Rating Frame Diameter Overall Width Overall Length

1,000 h.p. 48” 64” 82”
1,250 h.p. 48” 64” 86”
2,000 h.p. 48” 68” 101”

This information will give you a rough idea as to the space requirements for the machine in question. We expect to have more complete information in the mail Monday morning relative to outline drawings, estimated prices, weights and delivery, together with the size of bearings and the critical speeds on all three ratings.

The motors will have the general construction as shown in figures 1, 4, 7 and 9 of Descriptive Leaflet 20391-A, copies of which are attached. Forced feed lubrication will be required on machines of these ratings and I presume that the blower will also require forced feed lubrication. We can either provide a small oil pump on the end of the motor shaft for lubrication of the motor bearings or lubrication can be provided by the fan manufacturer.

In installing this equipment we recommend that the fan be supported in its own bearings and that the motor be direct connected to the ...

Mr. Nikola Tesla,

My dear Mr. Tesla

We are taking steps to accumulate information regarding our Company's early history and achievements. Much of this, of course, is well known and is covered in various publications. We, however, desire to secure from individuals an account of the part they had in the Company's activities, either in engineering developments, in notable installations, or of other incidents which they recall and deem of significance and interest. Obviously, the inclusion of dates and of the names of those connected with incidents will be of particular interest. References to published papers by you or by others, describing the things in which you were most interested, are also needed.

This letter may seem a little general and indefinite, but you will catch its spirit. A collection of personal contributions from a large number of persons will bring together much material that is now unknown and will make a valuable collection of historical information which it is proposed to classify and index and keep as a permanent record of the Company.

Our Company has made many significant contributions to the electrical industry. Many of these have been due to the efforts of particular individuals, and their own stories of what was done will be a fine contribution to the history of the Company, now just reaching its fiftieth year.

Your advice along the above lines will be deeply appreciated.

Very truly yours,

H. W. Cope

My dear Sir:

In the coming Trans-Mississipi International Exposition we have taken a large and prominent space and will give special prominence to a Tesla exhibit. We will have polyphase generators and motors, and desire to add to the interest of the exhibit by placing the early Tesla apparatus. A large exhibit of this was made at the World's Fair which was then sent to you in New York. It is possible that this may have been lost in your fire, though perchance it may have escaped and is now available. We request that you will let us have for exhibit as much material as is practicable. Let us know with regard to the matter at an early day as the Exposition opens very soon.

Dear Mr. Brown:

I am sorry to inform you that the latest photo I have of Mr. Nikola Tesla was taken a good many years ago.

If you can obtain from Mr. Tesla the name of the photographer who made his portrait, I'll be pleased to obtain a print for you.

Mr. Nikola Tesla,

New York, N.Y.

My dear Mr. Tesla:

I am grateful for your note of August 3rd. I regret to hear that you are still suffering from your injuries but I hope to hear soon of your complete recovery.

I have read with much interest your description of your mechanical therapy, which I shall promptly bring to the attention of our proper official.

I presume your reference to your new system of transmission is the subject you had in mind during our telephone conversation some time ago. I hope you will soon be able to tell us something about it as we have a traditional interest in this very important field.

I read your letter with the interest that naturally goes with my early association with you in our early pioneering work which has brought such great benefit to the whole world.

With much respect, I remain,

Cordially yours,

Dear Mr. Tesla:

We appreciate your letter of October thirtieth to Mr. Robertson, outlining your recent investigation of the “art of producing terrestrial motion at distance.” I have referred it to our Research engineers who are considering the possible advantages of this mechanical method of transmitting signals as compared to wire and radio communication.

You have presented this subject in a very interesting manner and I want to thank you for referring it to us.

Very truly yours,

Gentlemen:

Permit me to remind you that recently I approached you with a specific proposal which I explained fully to your engineers. Their attitude in the matter caused me a painful surprise. Some money was necessary but they would not even recommend an advance for compensating my personal services or for the construction of my device. What interested me most was to give an exhibition of rotating field phenomena on a large scale. I had found that with a small field ring and only 100 horse power applied, delicate devices would spin in a radius of twenty feet around the ring, and with a large ring and ample power supply the phenomena could have been exhibited at great distance.

When I gave them the same information they said at once that the plan was rational and expressed the desire to investigate it. As a business basis they paid me twenty-five thousand dollars and promised to see me again in a couple of months. On returning they reported that their tests had proved satisfactory and that they were ready to go ahead. This meant much money for me, but I had devoted years to raising poultry which involves several billions of dollars annually. The artificially raised poultry is unfit for the human stomach. The eggs are leathery and the meat is saturated with oils owing to which the body can not assimilate the proteins.With the help of a very able analytical chemist I have prepared a compound which I have named “Factor Auctus”, signifying “Creator of Growth” which is given daily in measured quantity to the fowls and pigeons separate from their food, and yields wonderful results.

Great thanks to everyone involved in this Tesla letter project!

It is an astounding revelation to see what obstacles were dropped in Tesla's way as he tried to realize his goal of providing every human with free energy. Obstacles placed with no motive other than greed. It is amazing to see, in these letters, how shamelessly he was screwed over by liars and thieves. I firmly believe that there is justice in this universe, and the villains who abused Tesla will really not enjoy their karma when it falls upon them.

There is much of historical importance in these letters.

What I don't understand here is: If you understand the importance and the immense value of this project, why not participate and just post this silly post?
Don't get me wrong, the things you say here aren't silly in themselves, it is the combination with your non-contributing that makes it silly. It is SO EASY to make a contribution in this thread, and yet almost no one does.

Ernst.

Hi cangas,

Thanks for the moral support. Since I started transcription of the correspondence, I've learn a lot about Mr. Tesla and I do hope others will benefit from it.

There is a lot still left to be done; transcription of most of the hand written letters, formatting not completed (that's Ernst contribution) and then corrections and finally proofreading of everything done.

I hope a few join in before the conclusion of the work, as everyone will benefit from at least the search option now possible, .

Hi ernst,

I guess you are very busy with your other projects, hang in there as you can only benefit from that work. I'm on the Easter break now and will resume work on the archive by the end of next week.

I received my hive Friday and got to get everything ready for my new hobby. The snow is almost all gone and it is getting a little warmer so that means the bee nucleus will arrive early and I have to be done with the preparations.

So take care and good luck,

Michel

Ernst.

Dear Ernst, if it gives you any solace, I reveal to you that I have read a number of your posts re other subjects in other threads, and been much impressed by the silliness you have managed to pack into them. It is obvious that there is more than ONE thing that you do not understand.

Rest assured that I have been earnestly working toward the goal of eventually providing free energy to all of humanity for about 25 years now, with only limited failure. That is, my failure rate has NOT been 100% though it is important for now for me to be non-specific and passive about it all. And if I want to speak of including initial lackadaisical effort, beginning about 45 years now.

When there is time for counting, when the game is done, perhaps I will compare my efforts and accomplishments with yours and we and many others will see who really is the silly one.


Your admiringand loving friend
CANGAS

Thank you for your response. I have indeed learned good information from this thread and am very appreciative. At times I have been desirous of joining your effort directly, but due to instability of my health have not wanted to commit to something I likely would not be able to fulfill.

Seriously

Hi Dom,
GREAT
Where to start? That depends on how many you plan to do. The S.Clemens folder contains only 3 letters, so that one is pretty easy to do. On the other end we have RU Johnson with almost 900 docs in 2 directories. RUJ also contains quite a lot of handwritten files to complicate matters. A relatively easy start could also be G Scherff (1), in that folder files 8-100 still have to be done, all typewrtter docs.
Michel has skipped many handwritten files, so there is another challenge...
So many choices...

Hi Jeff,
Don't worry about taking a break, or even stopping. All help is very much appreciated.
You have already done more than 99.9% of the forum members.


Ernst.

RU Johnson(1) -0002

New York, Dec. 7, 1893

Mr. R.U. Johnson, Esq.,
327 Lexington Avenue,
New York City, New York

Dear Mr. Johnson:

Your first letter reached me late this afternoon, and just now as I was about to write you, your second was handed to me.

Upon receipt of your first note I immediately secured the best seats I could get for Saturday. Nothing better than fifteenth row. Very sorry, we shall have to use telescopes. But I think this is better for Mrs. Johnson's vivid imagination.

Saturday is as convenient a day for me as Friday. I would have said so to you before yesterday but I implied you would prefer Friday.

I have made no arrangement whatever for dinner. If it is agreeable we shall go to Delmonico's, and I shall call on you any hour you may appoint.

In the anticipation of the pleasure

Yours sincerely

Hi Ernst.

I decided to start on the RU Johnson(1) directory. I have only a limited amount of time to help but I will continue to help until no more help is needed.

Hi Dom,
We need all the help we can get and very much appreciate any help, even if it is only one letter!
Jeff & Michel,
I too have been very busy lately, and just returned from Europe. The formatting and QA work is piling up, which is both a good thing (transcriptions are getting done) and a bad thing (my work still has to get done, one way or another).
Anyway, as long as we are work is getting done, it will eventually get completed.



Ernst.

Mr. Nikola Tesla
Colorado Springs, Colo.

Dear Mr. Tesla:

Your four dispatches have been received. In answer to one of them I have telegraphed that the cables around the room are 162 feet long each. Pursuant to your order contained in the last oneI give herewith an account of the present state of the work and shall make a report every day.

The apparatus has been returned from Chicago in good condition, the boat is set up in the laboratory and Willy has put it in perfect working order. He is now reparing and packing up the break, he wishes to know if the small Crocker-Wheller motor which drives the disk will have to be shipped to Colorado. The jars have been cleaned and are ready for shipment; one and a half dozen extra bottles are now being ground.

Mr. Ulman says the resistance will be finished to-day and the condenser will be completed about next Tuesday. He is also sending, under separate cover, three sketches of an oscillator, on which he wishes to get your opinion.

Is the apparatus to be shipped by freight or express? I have inquired by telephone this morning about the charges, and ...

__________________________________________________ _________________

G Scherff 1 #0010


... ascertain that by freight it will cost $2.20 per hundred pounds to send the apparatus to Colorado Springs. And it will take from five to eight days to get there; the express rate is $8.50 per hundred pounds and the trip will last three days. Perhaps we might ship the heavy apparatus, such as condensers, transformer, etc., immediately by freight train, and the more delicate machinery by express as soon as it is ready?

Very few letters have been received so far, none of them of importance. I inclose two.

Respectfully,

George Scherff.

Mr. Nikola Tesla,
Colorado Springs, Colo.

Dear Mr. Tesla:

I am sorry I cannot add much to my report of yesterday.

The sketches mentioned were not quite ready last night and could only be mailed this morning. The work on the condenser is being pushed. Mr. Clark is milling down the teeth of the disk for the break, and Mr. Czito is fixing up the bearings. Willy has finished grinding out the necks of the bottles and is now making salt solution.

The rubber solution for the balloons seems to work better than the first; a few more coats of it will probably make them tight.

Respectfully,

Geo Scherff.

Colo. Springs May --- 1899.


Dear Mr. Scherff

I have received the letter and sketches of Mr. Ulman: also report of Mr. Loewenstein. You ought to have --- me --- money rather.

Please tell Mr. Ulman that none of the modifications proposed is suitable. The trouble arises from the fact that the base is too high and the oil level is not enough below the top of the shaft. Lengthening the shaft is not a good remedy. I believe the best is to lower the base and lengthen cores. The lengthening of cores will be of advantage any way. We get more ampere turns and better cooling. I have telegraphed instructions to this effect in regard to the independent break, and hope that Mr. ...

__________________________________________________ ___________________

G Scherff 1 #0017


... Ulman has understood what I meant. He should go ahead and make modification in the design accordingly.

The present oscillator should, I believe, also be best modified in this way by lowering the top of base. This would necessitate a larger primary and the base would be somewhat longer, but it would not matter. Tell Mr. Ulman to look out that in this modified design the columns supporting rods come to the center. He should send sketch as soon as possible. I would also want him to modify the old large break, as I told him before going away. The top should be redesign, but the pump should remain as now, in the form of a screw.

Mr. Nikola Tesla, Esq.,
Colorado Springs, Colo.

Dear Mr. Tesla:

Your two letters of May 19th have been received this morning.

The Okonite wire has already been shipped to-day per American Express Company. The cables around the room and the one from the roof will be sent off to-morrow; they are all ready, and we are only waiting for a large drum to wind them on, which the Okonite Company is sending.

All the other instructions are being carried out to the letter and as quickly as possible.

I regret to say that the balloons seems to be a failure after all. One of them has now twelve coats of varnish, but it is still impossible to fill it with air. The varnish remains sticky and comes off in patches. The varnisher is this evening trying spar varnish on a small piece of silk: I will communicate the result of the experiment to-morrow. If it is impossible to make the balloons useful, shall we send some kites? ...

__________________________________________________ ___________________

G Scherff 1 #0020


In view of the enormous expense of sending the heavy apparatus by express I hope to get further instructions in regard to this matter. The Merchants' Despatch Transportation Company guarantee to deliver the apparatus in five days, at $2.20 per hundred pounds.

May I ask for authority to sign orders, at least for Patterson, Goatfired and Hunter ?

I hope the Rocky Mountain climate is proving invigorating to you.

Respectfully,

Geo. Scherff.
