Editor's Notes

"I send Mr. Edison a copy of the Jrnl Society of Arts of London + a letter. If [unclear] to Gouraud's alleged dicovery Mr. Edison. ### Did it come? I heard from Dredge to-day. He thinks you should be moving in the 'Seperator' How long before matters will shape themselves? Yours truly, Wm. H. Wiley PS: "I am considering at Dredge's suggestion the propriety of going to the Exposition to take charge of certain American Exhibits + am negotiating with a Co. here, for that end. I offered to take hold of their affairs for $2000 provided I could get three others concerns + would then stay in Paris during the Exposition say 6 to 8 months. I have also a letter from a friend of Dredge's + of mine asking me to put time in the way if handling [unclear] American Patents + stating he had a large [unclear] Bank who wants to invest in a good American enterprise. You might present this case to Mr. Edison + see whether the Ore Separator Co. would be one of my $2000 people. Dredge says about this you could advance the special plea that you wuld have me at your back. He is one of the British Commisioners on the Exhibition"
