Abstract

[Marginalia: What invention does this refer to?"] "I am just in receipt of the following cablegram: ### 'Berlin Edison shares have risen sharply in consequence of as we hear, an invention of one of their officers similar to that about which you have telegraphed. We, therefore, advise your friend to act quickly about patents in Washington and especially in Berlin.' ### An express package came to hand this morning evidently sent by you, containing samples of tailings and siftings. ### Not having been favored by a reply to my respects of 26th inst. Which I beg to confirm herewith, I ask again whether you will need a larger quantity of ore than you have on hand for a proper trial." Yours truly, H. Villard [Marginalia: "Have you received the car load of ore from Wisconsin?" [Marginalia: "This has been answered letters crossed."]
