[D8845AFN], Letter from James Dredge to Thomas Alva Edison, November 10th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have your letter of the 29th October, which is entirely [unclear] as it given me accurate information about your wishes which I am act upon as well as I can. No harm has come from the uncertainty of the situation, since cleared up by your letter. I did not like, pending its receipt, to do anything which might appear offeed to balance Gourauds wishes so long as in my judgment-[unclear] was not against your interests. ### As regards the ocleation of the Crystal Palace as a place for exhibition of the separator, I believe it is a good one, or I would not have sanctioned its acceptance, especially as I had to back out of the offer kindly made me by any friends Newbury + Vantin. I have however retained their friendly interest, & their aid will be invaluable when we come to obtaining and testing gold ore. ### I might tell you that I consider Mr. Osgood Wiley has consisently shown the most active wish to carry out your instructions, and I think he has acted with good judgment, or the most sincere devise to please you. All the parts of the separator are carefully boxed up at the Crystal Palace, and will remain so tell you are quite ready. Mr. Wiley has done Wellentt in obtaining the free use of power and altogether the arrangements he has made are as good as could be wished. ### In my mind [unclear] Gouraud as your representative for the phonograph should command all consideration from us, which does not interfere with your interest you may trust my judgment in this. ### Let me [unclear] you on the [unclear] of the phonograph, it results are marvelous I call the [unclear] aural photograph. ### Please tell me if the separator could deal with [unclear] containing copper & McKel. If so, it may be very interesting in that direction." Yours faithfully, James Dredge
