[D8818ARQ], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Walter Seeley Mallory, August 17th, 1888

Abstract

I had not forgotten the matter mentioned in your letter 15th instant. It appears that TAE put one of his men at work to obtain this analysis, but the latter failed to conduct it properly-in fact, botched the whole thing. Just at that time TAE was confined to the house by an attack of dyspepsia and found it advisable to go to Chautauqua. He has been absent about ten days. We expect him back on Tuesday or Wednesday next. The matter of this analysis is one which I will bring before him immediately upon his return, and when I hear what he has to say about it, I will write you further. # I have given instructions that no one be allowed to see the Ore Milling machine unless they are introduced by myself or TAE, so if the gentlement you mention comes along, he will be successfully headed off.
