[D8953ABQ1], Letter from Lewis Miller to Thomas Alva Edison, November 30th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Dear Mr. Edison:-- I have made a pretty full investigation of the oolitic ores and find that the so-called lime stone ore of Southern Ohio has this peculiarity; that in one part of a hill they get ore such as we inspectd when at the factory which is ooolitic in character and in other places in the same hill it changes into that o the irons such as we had there. That is, the same vein changes fromt eh oolitic to the other ores. I have not beena ble to find any other beds in Souther Ohio. Have also made considerable inquiry in Tennessee and have got quite a number of specimens from that Southern iron region and find nothing that is oolitic but a number of the specimens seem to have so oxideized as to have the pink color and some a beautiful yellow. Do you care to have the samples? Can forward them if desired. Yours resp'y, Lewis Miller <TAE marg: Send Samples [ans Dec. 9/89]>
