Title

[D8020ZII], Letter from Vesey F Butler to Thomas Alva Edison, October 28th, 1880

Editor's Notes

Long letter about Sagredor's illness (yellow fever) & death. Weakened by malaria & peritonitis; "the fact that he was constantly taking excessive doses of quinine" didn't help. Inventory of possessions follows on film. Can get botanists' collection of 200+ different samples of Cuban wood.
