Abstract

"I have just received a letter from Mr. Mallory, who is now up at Humboldt, Mich., and he sends us the enclosed leaf from the 'Iron Age'. ### Now, the question is, by whose authority was this article published? I hope that it was not by your consent, for it is embarrassing Mr. Mallory very much in his negotiations up in Michigan in closing options on ore dumps. ### Walter says that up to the time this article came out he was having very good luck in figuring with the Mine men, but now that this is published they are hesitating and refusing to close with him, because they think they will have too good a thing if they close contracts with him on the basis that he suggests. ### I am very sorry, indeed, that this article has been published, and I hope in the future, any-way, until we get our business more thoroughly established, you will try and subject any further publications of this kind. ### Hoping to see you and all your family with us next week, I am"
