Title

[D8828ACQ1], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Thomas Alva Edison, August 1st, 1888

Editor's Notes

"With this is attached the expenses to date of the Fibre Expedition. You will note that the bill of expenses to date is $11,129.29. ### In addition to this there will be a probable expense of another $5000.00. ### It will require, as you see, a million and a half Fibres at one cent a piece to pay for this expense. It strikes me that Hannington is a terrible expensive man to send. We have a letter to-day which calls upon us to send $600.00 more to Hannington. ### I think it would be a fair estimate to consider that our Samples of Fibres, cost about $150.00 a piece."
