Abstract

"Your telegram of the 31st ulto. Was duly received. We do not make underwriters wire, but are sending you by this same mail under separate cover, a small sample of your Compound dissolved in Bi-sulphide of Carbon. This will give you an idea of the consistency of the compound that we require. We have tried Spirits of Turpentine, and Benzol, but do not like either of them. In fact any kind of solvent becomes very expensive and objectionable from a manufacturing point of view. We require a compound that will melt as a liquid, as the sample which we send you. We shall be glad to have from you a sample of the most highly non-inflammable compund that you can make. We required this for a special purpose." Yours very truly, John Kruesi
