Abstract

The papers here recently published some alarming statements about an accident that had happened to you. Subsequent reports contradicted the first ones so I trust that the affair was alright.##Your ore separator is now running well, and this week we shall pass some ore through, In consequence of a total absence of information, we have had to go slow and experiment with the dynamo until we could get a fair duty from it, at 1450 revolutions it gave very good results.##I have means now of knowing definitely what can be done in Scandinavia, and am in negotiations with Mr. O'Driscoll with some owners of magnetic mines in Italy, who would want to treat 200 tons a day to begin with. These mines wil forward 20 tons for trial shortly.##I have been asked on what terms machines are to be had, but of course am unable to give any answer. It will be useful when you can inform me on this point.##Mr. W. H. Wiley writes me for my vies on a proposal he has made or think of making to you. I am writing him by this mail, telling him I cannot concur in his suggestion, with very small current expenses the value of the separator can be ascertained, and it would be desirable for eveyr reason to restrict outlay to the lowest amount
