Dear Tesla:

Will you be my guest at the Author's Club, Carnegie Hall, 56th St., entrance, February 17th, at 8:15 P.M. sharp.? There is to be demonstration of Trans-continental Telephony in conjunction with Bohemian Club of San Francisco with supper afterwards. Each guest is to have a telephone receiver.

My dear Luka:

I am very much obliged to you for the hospitality preferred but to my regret it will be impossible for me to come for reasons which hardly need explained.

At this moment I am busier than ever before and, besides, I have very little interest in the experimental demonstration.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Nikola:

We want you to drive with us Thanksgiving and Christmas evenings as in the old days. Will you not come?

It is a great sorrow that we see nothing of you whom we dearly love and who are so much to us. Surely our affection and confidence and sympathy cannot be matter of indifference to you, and we greatly need yours.

In itself the operation is not dangerous I am told but at my age any chopping up is more serious than at yours – for one news --- what treason is lurking inside the fort.

Little Robby is with us and he is showing great interest in mechanical things. He is an adorable child and my imagination pictures a great future for him. I should like him to carry a vivid impression of you in his manners …

Hi jeff,

Thanks for the kind words. I was quite busy during the last few months with the grand kids home for the summer but it's back to normal with school starting soon so I have some time to dedicate to the project.

This was my first year at bee-keeping with a Flow Hive and so far got 38 lb of pure honey and hope to reach about 45-50 lb by the end of the season. I enjoyed working with the bees but was careful as it is now populated with around 40,000 bees. So far only 2 stings and the good thing is that I am not allergic.

Wish you the best on your Earthship project.

Take care,

Michel

P.S.: Ernst, how are you doing with the Tesla project?

Thumbs up A few questions.

Hi Ernst,

Impressive work done there and a very nice generator. I have a few questions if you have time to address them.

Did Tesla ever used an Oudin coil to transmit power?

When do you think you will start testing and how will you tap in to test the power transmission? Can we help?

Are you planning to test the transmission over a great distance?

How deep is your ground tap? (Down to water table depth?)

Tesla used scale type plates in the dome of the transmitting tower, would it be more efficient at creating the ionization needed in the surrounding fluid (term used by Tesla in his flying machine patent)

This part is from far off memories. The Earth ground resistance is about 300 Ohm?, how much current would that setup push through it?

Take care,

Michel

First and foremost: Thanks for your continuous work on this thread!

I do not believe he did? Why would he? I don't believe it would even be possible in the quantities that Tesla was thinking of.
Quote:

The first tests will concern power generation rather than transmission.
But when we'll test transmission, we'll pick it up where we left it (at 50 m) and take it from there. We can test a few 100 Km, about 10,000 Km and perhaps the boys from Brazil can help test almost 20,000 Km. It is funny to see that many people offer help on this particular point. Maybe at some point, if our tests are successful I can publish details on how to build a receiver and do a worldwide test. But I do not expect that anytime soon.

Quote:

I have two 15 m and two 17 m deep. Ground water is at 10 m.

Quote:

There are many points on which my system could be improved, we just want a proof of concept for now.

Quote:

As much as we can. I have no figures on that yet.


Ernst.

Thanks Ernst,

I did not want to mess your other thread with my questions. As for this thread, I'm happy to help as I can read R. U. Johnson hand written letters, but the Tesla 's one, can't make head or tail. Thanks Jeff Pearson for his hard work at deciphering them.

I tried a few jpg to txt, doc and pdf converters for the typed letters but it did not give good results, that would have speeded up the transcriptions. As they say:"Tough luck".

Take care,

Michel

My dear Luka:

Inclosed please find check for $500. as promised day before yesterday.

When you acquired the shares the actual cost was over $5,000 and there was an excellent prospect that you might make in the transaction something like $50,000. Unfortunately all my friends deserted me and unscrupulous promoters were permitted to exploit my wireless inventions which have since been universally adopted and serve as the only means of flashing messages across the seas.

Under the circumstances I shall endeavour to refund to you the $2000 with the interest to date as quickly as possible and this check is a payment on account.

Yours sincerely,

As matters now stand I fear that it will not be possible for me to do anything. But I have excellent prospects and you will undoubtedly hear from me favourably within three months from now.

It seems that you have got me and that Italian promoter mixed. The fact is just the opposite but my friends do not see it so.

It seems to me that some of your close friends, as Messrs Anthony, Bertrand or Thorne would be very glad to assist you temporarily if you merely express the wish. These gentlemen deal in large affairs, are very wealthy, and any one of them could take over your mortgages and, in addition, provide you with money you need now.

The only suggestion I can make is that you call on Mr. Richard Peters, an old friend of mine, to whom I advanced …

I have received your appeal “Now for Italy” with which I would be in sympathy had it been forward with due observance of the lofty principles of which you are an ardent exponent. But the vulgar promoters who are exploiting the public would defile a more snored cause than that of Charity.

I am afraid that what you lack in judgement is vastly in excess of that possessed by Salomon and if you are not careful in fathering such schemes your reputation will share the fate of the German Mark.

However, you always mean to do well and may Heaven bless you.

Do you think it is impossible that some time a football game at Cambridge should be reproduced on the screen in New York simultaneously with the activity? Of course the principle of photographic motion has been established. Has there been established the principle of transmitting a portrait by telegraph?If so, are these not all the principles that would be involved,- the rest being adjustment and detail? If you will invent the process we can share the results and both be millionaires, for it can be adapted to other things.

In the present state of the art the best suggestion I can make to this end is to employ nine flying machines (wing- and propeller-less) of my invention capable of a speed of 500 miles per hour or more, to take the negatives of an innings, develop the films in transit and then reel them off as fast as they arrive.

… involve a delay of three-quarters of an hour but you could gain on this by innocently juggling the difference between the eastern and western time.

The above is offered merely on the principle that something is better than nothing. The simultaneously transmission is a hard nut to crack. It calls for an invention to which I have devoted twenty years of careful study and which I hope I will ultimately realize, that is, television, making possible to see at distance through a wire. I agree with you that if successfully caried out it could be “adapted to other things: - of which you do not seem to have thought. I am glad however, to know that you thought.

December 30,
1919.

Dear Tesla:

Here's a Happy New Year to you (occidental reckoning)! May all your plans and projects prosper.

We are soon to have Olivia and Robby again as part of your household, and I am very happy accordingly. He is a fine boy and she is a charmer who draws the eyes of all beholders by the gentle and dignified beauty.

Mrs Filipov had an alarming turn the other day losing consciousness three times but she is up again. We Johnson hope to last a little longer. Meanwhile be patient with them.

With all good wishes,

Yours to be sure,

R. U. J.

Robert Underwood Johnson, Esq.,
347 Madison Avenue,
New York City, N.Y.

My dear Johnson:

I am sorry to learn through your letter of Dec. 30th of Mrs Filipov's unsatisfactory health. If I did not know to what extent the Johnson's are abusing their digestive apparatus I would consider such signs dangerous. But I am certain that if she would observe my care in in the diet she would feel like a girl of twenty.

Thanks for the inclosures. Your fine poem is appreciated but there is nothing as usual in the clipping you have forwarded. If you ever read an announcement from me you can bank on it.

With best wishes for a prosperous New Year, I remain, as ever

Faithfully yours,

Dear Tesla:

Thank you for your nice letter and your good wishes. I thought of you yesterday on Old Christmas but couldn't write you, Mrs Filipov is better.

You will be interested to know that the Serbian Minister has just informed me that I am to be made Commander of the order of St. Sliva by Prince Rejean Alexander, a distinction which I haven't done much to ---, I fear. I suppose it --- back to the 'Paraphrases”.

The year 1916 brought me several other honors:

Commander of Corona d'Italia
Officer of Leopold II
Director of Hall of Fame
Author of “Collected Poems”
Recipient of nice letters from Nikola Tesla.

Yours faithfully,

R. U. Johnson's

My dear Luka:

Your kind letter of even date is a further evidence that you still consider me worthy of your friendship.

The Serbians would have thought of you before had they not been so very busy for the past few years. You must pardon them the seeming neglect.

I am glad you are enjoying these distinctions. If I had any to bestow, I would send you a bucketful of them. My citizen papers are good enough for me.

Hoping that Mrs. Filipov is minding my prescription and will continue to improve. I am as everybody
Yours faithfully,

Dear Tesla:

Yes a certificate of citizenship is a fine honor, but ought you not to value more highly your birth certificate? If there has been no occasion for that, where shall you be now?

As for me, I should rather write a good poem than have that bushel of decorations which you would bestow – especially if it were a paraphrase from another one of your translations for the Serbian.

Good luck to you!

Faithfully yours,

R. U. Johnson.

Dear Tesla:

I have been compelled today to sell (sacrifice) some Government bonds at a little over 91 in order to pay for the edition of my “Collected poems” just issued for me by the Yale University press.

So when Prosperity strikes your trail, remember

Dear Tesla:

I am sorry to find you in as I dislike to leave this precious volume to the danger of being mislaid. If you look through it you will see what makes it precious – not my poem “In Tesla's Laboratory”, not the paraphrases from the Serbian after Tesla's translations but the autographs of Joffre, Foch Diaz Orlando Joethals of --- Clemenceau Orlando Joethals Paderewoski, Verrizelos Chambrain & others, each at an appropriate place. Will you be a good boy and write your name either --- the laboratory (p.116) or on page 133 under your printed name. When I get --- …

… I shall have it re-bound by Stilleman in fine style.

Will you wrap the book and address it to me and leave it at the desk so that I may call for it before long.

And will you send back with it read or unread my reminiscences of you and I'll print the errors as they stand and take the consequences.

When are you coming to dine with us and pretend that we are old friends? I am engaged for the 21, 22 and 27 but Mrs. Filipov will arrange date.

I am again a grandfather – for the 10th time --- Patricia Johnson having been born February 6 without the slightest contretemps Owen and his wife are happy and so are we. ...

I hope this thread get some updates, excellent work!

Anyone know how i can do a search in this topic?
I tried the search function.. but no luck so far.

I'm looking for the translation where Tesla orders a French book about wireless communication.
I'm sure i've read it in here.. but can't find it anymore.

Any suggestions?

G.Scherff 210 is the first mention, 238 the next, then 246 and finally 267.

I have put the verified transcripts together in one document that can easily be searched.
That was the whole idea behind this project.
Unfortunately I haven't had much time lately and the verification takes quite a lot of time too.
It is great to see the project gets support from a number of people, especially Michelinho who has so far done by far the most transcripts.

I hope to have some time again to catch up with Michel but if someone else wants to do some collecting, formatting and verfification work.... by all means!!


Ernst.

Almost 2 years have passed and finally I have managed to create a first publication out of these transcripts.
It concerns only a small subset: the letters to and from J.P. Morgan sr.
These together with a few related letters, articles and some context have now been put together in a small booklet that can be bought on Amazon.

I believe it provides a unique insight into what happened at that time and how it was experienced by those directly involved.

Please have a look and know that with your purchase you are supporting my project to revive Tesla's dream!
(Also, if you buy this book, please leave an honest and hopefully positive review on amazon)

Once I have sold a few books I plan to order some for myself as promotion material and one for Michelinho and Jeff Pearson if you'd PM me a delivery address!
