Abstract

"Mr. W.H. Wiley called this afternoon in regard to foreign Ore Milling business. He has received a letter from Mr. Dredge, in which the latter asks what Mr. Edison proposed to do after the Ore Milling plant is set up in Vantines' yard in London. Mr. Dredge says that he will work the machine, put different ores through it, bring people to see it, and have it talked about generally in mining circles. But he asks what Mr. Edison wishes to do in the way of real business. Mr. Wiley wanted to see Mr. Edison this afternoon, but I told him Mr. Edison was so busy he could not be seen, and that I would let him know when it would be possible for him to have an interview. Meanwhile we ought to settle upon some definite policy as to the handling of this foreign business. I do not know how much thought Mr. Edison has given to it, but I do believe that he has no settled plan in view. Cannot we talk the matter over with him the next time you come out here? When are you coming out again?" Yours very truly, A.O. Tate
