Editor's Notes

"We send you a circular of very fine and remarkable optional outfit for projection, in which we think you may be interested, as it is unique. Should you care to purchase it we would be pleased to make you special prices. ### We have received notice of the shipment of a large invoice of apparatus for you from Dr. M. Th. Edelmann. ### We notice that in the orders which you have given us, there is almost nothing of our own manufacture, the orders being almost altogether for importation. We are pleased to call your attention to the fact that we have one of the best managed and thoroughly equipped shops for the manufacture of scientific apparatus in this country, and in case you should want to have anything made we should be pleased to give you plans and specifications as we have a corps or reliable workmen and the person who has charge of the manufacture is a first class draughtsman and has had long years of experience in the use and manufacture of scientific apparatus. In this way we feel that we are better equipped for special work at present than ever before, and should be glad to hear from you in regard to anything which you may wish made. ### During the visit of Mr. Walton to Europe during this summer, he purchased a large amoung of interesting new material which we have now in our store and should be pleased to show you there is a great deal of apparatus, etc. which is new and which we think you would find interesting, and we should be glad to have you come and spend a day with us. ### We shall be pleased to hear from you and remain" very Repsectfully Jame W. Queen & Co. per H [TAE marg: "No Ans"; also docket "Ans Jan11/88"]
