Editor's Notes

Philadelphia, Pa., U.S.A. Dec. 11, 1889.Mr. Thos. A. Edison, Orange, N.J. [Underneath dateline: OK] Dear Sir:— In accordance with your request, we beg leave to submit to you herewith a Condensed Catalogue of the Mineral Collection of Mr. Geo. P. Kunz, to which we trust you will give due consideration. We also desire to call your attention to a few points in reference to the collection. In order to make it still better suited to your wants than when it was first offered to you, Mr. Kunz has since added to it a very considerable number of extra large massive specimens, principally of the metallic minerals, from which you could break off pieces for experiments. We are authorized to offer you the entire collection, with these additions, at the same price which we previously quoted, viz. $5000. We will also pack and unpack the collection and arrange it for you, without charge. We shall be pleased to meet you in Orange at any time you may name, and accompany you to Mr. Kunz's house and show the collection to you. Trusting you will favor us with an early reply, we remain Very respectfully yours (Dictated). Geo. L. English & Co [Enclosure Condensed Catalogue of the Geo. F. Kunz Mineral Collection [Goes on for four pages]
