[D8952ACM], Letter from John Pender to Thomas Alva Edison, December 24th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Dear Mr Edison, After writing you a few weks ago in reference to the titaniferous ore in New Zealand the enclosed prospectus was issued for dealing with the same, the primary object however being to obtaine and dispose of the petroleum which exists in the same neighborhood.##I have been confidentially informed by Sir Dillon Bell, the Agent-General for New Zealand, that it has been reported that you are to put down plant in New Zealond for separating the ore, and possibly the promoters of the Syndicate rely upon this for making their venture a success; but having regard tot eh communications which have passed between us respecting your Iron Separator, I of course attach no importance to the rumour.##I hope you will before very long receive the barrels of titaniferous sand which I have ordered to be sent to you from new Zealand; and I shall be anxious to learn the results of your experiments with the same.##With all seasonable greetings and good wishes for the New Year, Yours sincerely John Pender P.S. I have to thank you for your communication regarding the Electric Light which I read to the Meeting. The meeting was a great success. JP [!Encl ans Jan 8/89]
