Abstract

[ore bricking; selectable?] Referring to your favor of July 1st, Mr. Edison desires me to state that the contact machine is finished and will be tried on Monday. The other machine is coming along slowly. ### With reference to your second letter of same date, Mr. Edison is still working on bricking the ore. He desires me to inform you that the Swedish Government recently tried experiments to brick ore, and failing to do so, made an experiment to find out how much fine ore could be used, with result that it was found that 70% could be utilized in an ordinary blast furnace, this amount being worked without the slightest difficulty. From this Mr. Edison gathers that the trouble of dealing with fine ore was an assumed one and had not any real foundation. Yours truly, Saml Insull
