"I have your favor of the 18th containing [unclear] instructions about the amounts to be paid to Mr. Osgood Wiley. This shall be strictly attended to. I have instructed Mr. Wiley to furnish me with a monthly statement of his expenditure, which, after I am endorsed it, I shall forward to you. ### In my last letter, I asked you a question relations it the possible separation of McKie + Copper is a mixed ore. Since then I am informed that the persons controlling these deposits have applied to you, + that you have advised them, not only that the separation can be done but that you in or undertake it. ### If therefore I promise this particular matter, it is because I learn that in any case large quantities of the ore will come to this country + I think it in your intersts,even if no such ore should come here but that all should be taken up by you, it prevents as far as possible, any interests conflicting with your own to come into the field. ### All the packing cases containing the separator, will today be devlivered at [unclear] Newberry + Vantin awaiting your further instructions. ### I feel that I have not done the phonograph [unclear] in Engineering. ### This was chiefly because, Colonel Goraud did not read a paper, but only delivered an address at the British Association. On Wednesday next he reads a paper before the Society of Arts, when I have taken care to be represented if I cannot attend personaly + shall devote considerable space in our paper next week to the subject." Yours faithfully, James Dredge
