[D8704AAP], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Charles Batchelor, April 6th, 1887

Editor's Notes

Don't forget to prepare laboratory plan; "I want a special or secret part to the machine shop for special things I want subrosa--"###Upton is going to Europe and may give up running Lamp Co.; wrote him to let you run finances temporarily--"of course there is nothing to do as they have plenty money"; told Upton I would put Tate, "a rising man" who is "honest, smart & ambitious," in the position permanently; perhaps Tate should be put in charge immediately--salary $2500 per year.###"I am feeling better although little dizzy in head."###Installed train gear in new engine; it rotates with considerable power, but haven't made cast iron wheel yet; Keller starts on it tomorrow; "Have struck something new & been working on that past 10 days, I think it's going be [sic] immense--"; have "tried ore milling experiment partially." TAE provides some technical details of this.
