Abstract

"I enclose you herewith sample of a peculiar kind of paper, and also of treated wood fibre from which it is made. ### I am told by one of our salesmen that his customer (a doctor) is making from sixty to eighty tons a day of this paper, and htat if it could be made perfectly white there is big money in it. He has tried, but unsuccessfully hitherto, to whiten the paper, but having been told by some electrician out in Chicago that it could be done by electricity, he is anxious that Mr. Edison should take hold of the matter, presuming, of course, that if it could be done by elecricity Mr. Edison would be the one to do it. ### I have promised to have the matter brought before him if possible, and think the best method of doing it is through you. Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience on the subject, I remain," Yours very truly, P.H. Klein Jr
