[D8803AAK], Letter from Albert Blake Dick to Thomas Alva Edison, May 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I am in search of a very thin, transparent, elastic Varnish or substance for coating our type-writer stencil paper which will make it impervious to ink, and to be spread over the stencil sheet after we have parafinned the fiberous paper with a very thin coating. I have tried collodion] but with poor success as it does not adhere to the wax sufficiently well to make satisfactory work. ### You spoke to me, when last in your Laboratory, of a thin coating which could be used for this purpose or rather which could be used without the paraffine, and I thought perhaps it would be just what we are looking for to use in connection with the praffine to make the sheets absolutely impervious to ink. ### If you can help us on this it will be appreciated."
