Abstract

Enclosed I send you an article praising upon the "Butter Extractor" of which I wrote you yesterday. I was in hopes that you could see the machine at work today. Milk will be run through it at noon -- it is not up[---]ted [---] day. Mr T Havemeyer and E Wiman and Frank Thunder (?) and many prominent gentlemen have been to see it -- I came from Little Falls to [several words blacked out by spilled ink on the page] I think the price at which it is suggested it will have to be paid at is too high. # Up to this hour (10:30) I have no message from you. I therefore conclude that you cannot attend to this matter. Pardon me please for having [-------] you with my correspondence concerning it with reference to separating butter from milk is my only warrant for speaking of it now. [New name mentions: T Havemeyer, and Frank Thunder(?)]
