Arthur P. Hodkins, Esq.,
Care of Messrs. Eaton & Lewis,
Edison Building, New York.
Dear Sir:-
Replying to your letter of the 18th instant I beg to submit the following for your information.
(1) The exact amount of the loan made by Frank McGowan to Mr. Dickson was Five hundred dollars. Mr. Dickson gave Mr. McGowan his note for this amount at either three of four months, I can ascertain the exact period of the note if you acquire it. Mr. Dickson also handed to Mr. McGowan One hundred and fifty shares of the Edison Ore Milling Company Limited and took McGowan’s receipt for them, which he now holds. The certificates were in the name of W.K.L. Dickinson and were endorsed in blank. There was no actual transfer these certificates on the books of the Ore Milling Company to McGowan; they disappeared with him.
(2) I know of no other loan under similar conditions, under any conditions whatsoever.
(3) There were twenty-five shares of stock of the Edison Ore Milling Company, Limited, transferred to Mark McGowan, and name is still on the books of the Company as a Stockholder of cord for this number of shares. The Ore Milling Company holds Frank McGowan’s receipt for this certificate; it also disappeared with Frank McGowan.
(4) McGowan did not hold any stock in the New Jersey Pennsylvania Concentrating Works, neither did he hold any in the New York Concentrating Works.
Trusting the above is what you require I am,
Yours very truly,
A.O. Tate
Private Secretary.
