Abstract

Dear Sir:- I have your favor of the 17th instant, and in reply beg to state that, Mr. Wiley is authorized to draw upon me for six pounds per week, to cover expenses, and twenty pounds per month on account of salary. Of course any ordinary expenses incurred in connection with the erection and operation of the apparatus he is also authorized to draw on me for. I would feel obliged if you will honor his drafts as above and send these forward through your correspondence in this country. I will make payment on them immediately they are presented. There is no object in their being presented to Col. Gouraud, as the business which he has charge of for me has nothing whatever to do with Ore Milling. I wired Mr. Wiley the other day, telling him not to exhibit the machine until my patent papers will arrive, which will be in the course of three weeks. I find that owing to some error in the office of my patent attorney my affairs in this connection have not received my proper attention. I am naturally anxious to rectify the error before any exhibitions of the apparatus take place.
