Abstract

"A letter received today from Mr. Edison explains to me all the arrangements made with regard to the Ore-milling business, as represented by Mr. Wiley. ### In view of my present information I entirely concur with Mr. Edison's views as to the undesirability of making the exhibition at the Crystal Palace, as both you and I thought preferable in the first instance. I have always had just a little bit of doubt about the wisdom of having it there, for reasons which I now need not enter into; but from your strong expressions of approval of the arrangements proposed by me, I felt that they had better stand. ### Mr. Edison also explains the arrangements made with regard to Mr. Wiley's requirements for money, and we think that the account had better be kept entirely separate; so that in order to make a complete separation I will ask Mr. Wiley to obtain from you, and repay to me, the advance that I have made to him, provided I hear from you that that course is quite agreeable to you. ### With regard to tickets for the Society of Arts, as communicated to me by Mr. Wiley on your behalf, I only received the tickets the day of the lecture. Others had been sent me some time before; but had been mislaid. However, I think you are to be congratulated on having escaped an hour and three quarters talk from me." Believe me yours faithfully, G.E. Gouraud
