[LM202038], Letter from Henry M Livor to Henry Kerr Hartzell, May 22nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

I am very much disappointed at the poor prospect of getting any quantity of ore in the immediate future. I do not see anything in the way of our starting up the millthe latter part of next week or the week following. We have shown on our part a desire to get the mill ready in the quickest possible time & have spared no expense, on the otyher hand you and Mr Edison have certainlhy not made the effort to keep up with us, the [number?] of men you have had at work could do but little. You will remember that in the last of April you said you would have 2000 tons of ore for me to work on by the 1st of June, you will not have one quarter of that amount of ore that will be worth putting through the mill, in this I include the piles at the old opening on the top of the hill. According to what you promised in your agrement with us you should by this time be in a position to furnish 100 tons daily & in short time from this 200 tons daily but if I am to take what Mr Edison says it will be a very long time befroe we can expect 200 tons of ore a day. I wish you would write me by afternoon mail stating that we may epxect in the way of ore.
