Abstract

[Letterhead: The Edison Electric Light Company] Received yours of 28th of last month.###Have been in Denver installing a brewery plant and am now busy with this plant, which I sold a few months ago.###Sorry I've been unable to mail mineral samples, but can't meet my living expenses on time, and traveling for samples requires cash expenditure.###Could write to acquaintances in various camps for samples, but don't consider this method business.###Hope you don't consider this excuse trifling and employ someone else.###Have given the matter attention every day; have discussed it with mining men and made valuable notes.###Found several places near Idaho Springs where rich Telluride ores can be found; the ores have never been worked for Tellurium [?] but it exists with other minerals more precious in comparatively large quantities.###When I get my commission from sale of plant, will have capital to travel after I get your instructions and assurance of employment; will not let lack of funds delay my business.
