Abstract

Re our conversation of today. Ore milling. Mr Edison's idea is to form under the laws of New Jersey a new corporation to be called the Edison Millin Co'y Capital $2,000,000 -- one greater of which or $500,000. to be paid to the Ore Milling Company which will be absorved, and the balance to be issued to T.A.E. for new inventions, he to turn back into the Treasury $250,000 for working expenses. Mr Edison has certain experiments which he desires to conduct that will cost a great deal of money. Under agreement the Ore Milling Co'y should furnish this Capital but as you know they have no money -- Edison has made some important discoveries and the reorganization will make the Stock valuable. ## What day could you come out with me to see T.A.E. If you are at present a grass widower and can leave town for a night you might come out with me any afternoon. I have taken Upton's house for this Summer and my wife and I would be very glad to see you. I usually go out at 4.50 but can suit your convenience -- the we could see Edison in the evening and I can get back to turn with you at any hour you like next morning -- thus not encroaching upon your business hours"
