Iron was electro-deposited from a ferrous chloride bath. Studies were made of deposits formed when current density was varied, and fin­ally when both current density and temperature were changed. An attempt was made to lay the ground work for a long range study of the chloride bath, and to determine the most simple conditions possible for obtaining a smooth, even, and thick deposit.
