[D8952AAF], Letter from James Dredge to Thomas Alva Edison, January 16th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[Add name mentions: George Edward Gouraud] "I have questioned Mr. Wiley on the subject of the £60 advanced by Mr. Gouraud. He tells me that the advance was made for the purpose of executing a commission with which you had entrusted & that you are fully acquainted with the incident. I trust this is satisfactory. The separator will be erected shortly, and I trust you will be satisfied that I have had it done as economically as possible. Will you please give me exact instruction as to what you wish done, in the way of showing or publishing [?] the machine when it is ready? I have no information as to the gold separating arrangement which is of course the most important. Although I wish no personal interest in the matter, I desire to carry out your wishes as fully as possible and for that reason am very desirous of knowing what they really are. If I might make the suggestion £4 a week are ample to pay Mr. Wiley's current expenses, together with the part of his salary."
