[D8952ABK], Letter from James Dredge to Thomas Alva Edison, April 2nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

"I have your letter of the 22d containing your new intentions which shall be at once attended to. As I have interested a number of prominent Scandinavian gentlemen in the matter, I propose to carry out an arrangement previously made with them, and show them a machine in operation. By doing so, I shall be able to form very [illeg] an idea of the value of the separator in Norway & Sweden, & shall get in connection with them who may intend to do business. Had I received your letter earlier, I should of course not have made this arrangement, but now I cannot well get out of it. Any communicatoin I may afterwards receive I will forward either to Paris or to yourself according to your instructions, that you may take up the correspondence. ### You are quite right in assuming that I have been prompted by a heavy [generic?] feeling of respect, and--if you will permit me to say so---of friendship towards yourself-- in this matter, and I can only [illeg] that so much money has been thorwn away to no purpose. # Should any future occasion arise in which you think I may be of service to you, on the basis aready indicated by me, I trust you will not hesitate to make me [illeg] in any way you may desire and I will be glad [to have you remember?] that the pages of Engineering are always open for communications from your Laboratory. ## Trusting that the occasion will again arise when I shall have the pleasure of corresponding with you."
