From the West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser, 12th September 1889


Messrs Henderson and Son of Truro write us, under date September 7th:- With reference to the announcement at the recent meeting at East Pool mine that the Telpherage line at Glynde, near Lewes, was 'altogether stopped', we wrote to the engineer of the Mines and General Telpher Co, Limited, and his reply is as follows:- 'I went down to Glynde today (5th inst). I find that the line is working satisfactorily and, with one exception (some four weeks ago), has been working continuously since my last visit more than a year ago. There is every reason to have increased confidence in the system rather than the reverse.
