[D8952AAE], Letter from Oviatt and Allen to Thomas Alva Edison, January 15th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"In compliance with your request when at our office on the 7th of this month, we have sent you, by express, to-day, a sample, weighing about 35 pounds, of the iron ore, with which you said you desired to make further experiments. This is the same kind of ore that was obtained by one of your agents at Coe Hill, in Canada, and with which you have already experimented. We have also requested samples of the copper and nickel ores from Sudbury to be sent here to us, and upon receipt of them will forward same to you, with sample also of the matte we are now making. Mr. S.J. Ritchie a resident of this city who is largely interested in the copper and nickel mines, and the iron mines with which we are connected, is now in New York, and desires the privilege of calling upon you and pursuing the conversation we had with you at our office. He has been at your place some 5 or 6 times, but has been unable to see you. We trust that you will be so kind as to grant him a short interview, for we have several metallurgical problems in connection with these ores that are of vital importance to us."
