[D8816ABH], Letter from Robert Anderson Miller to Thomas Alva Edison, December 13th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"You thought charcoal pig iron was out of the market I enclose a few clippings from the "Age of Steel." And in the Iron Age of Dec 6th you will find as follows. F.O.B. Chicago Ills Lake Superior Charcoal #1 and 2 @ 20.00 ; Chicago, Ills Lake Superior Charcoal 3 to 6 @ 20.50 ; Cincinnati O. Hanging Rock Charcoal #1 @ 21.00 ; Cincinnati O. Hanging Rock Charcoal #2 @ 19.00 ; Louisville Ky Hanging Rock Charcoal #1 @ 20.70 ; Louisville Ky Southern Charcoal Foundry #1 @ 17.75 ; Louisville Ky. Southern Charcoal Mill #1 @ 16.00 ; Pittsburgh Pa Charcoal Foundry #1 @ 23.50 ; Pittsburgh Pa Charcoal Foundry #2 @ 21.00 ; Pittsburgh Pa Cold Blast Charcoal @ 25.00 ; Detroit Mich Lake Superior Charcoal all numbers @ 20.00 ; There is quite a demand and quite a supply of charcoal pig iron and should you want any more proof or quotations I can send them. I find our Edison Machinery has not come yet and there seems some hitch some where. I have not seen Lynch who has charge of the matter. # All are well in Canton and Uncle Jacob is about as usual the few machines I put in are doing nicely and he is going to be brought around all right. # I'll send best regard to you and all Madeleine is a darling. But wait. My 'Ice Berg' sends you her love and tells me that if the weather is not too cold when you are out this way she will try to make it comfortable for you when you visit us.
