[D8952ABG], Letter from James Dredge to Thomas Alva Edison, March 16th, 1889

Abstract

Enclosed I send you samples of the first run we made with your machine yesterday: the ore being one of the lots you sent. The separation seems very good, & is the result of only one run through, but I know it has been crushed too fine. The amount of dust however made it absolutely necessary to stop running and this must be provided against before we run again. We shall have to enclose the frame in the wood & glass panels, and make a shirt to the flue in the room to arrest and collect the dust. This will involve expense, but it should be kept as low as possible.##I am getting up a good deal of interest in the matter among a few important people & shall soon know the prospect of the arangement for Europe.
