[LM202168], Letter from Henry M Livor to P F Gildea, August 6th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"There will be a man from Schenectady down to Bechtelsville to connect the new magnets. This will be connected undoubtedly in a different way from the present one. I think it would be well for you to be with the man during the whole time that the magnet is being connected so that you will know how to connect the other magnets when they come down. # Gibel write me that they are not receiving ore fast enough. I cnanot understand how this can be unless [Reid--aur] is not [illeg] it down fast enough. You had, at a rough estimate, I should say 60 0r 70 tons on hand at the time that they gave their order for 10 tons per day. Therefore, with what you have made since you could have easily given them an average of 10 tons per day for some time to come. ## In reference to the magnet which has just arrived, you will of course underatand that it is to take the place of teh one that is in use at present, and I wish you would keep the man there a day or two after it is connected to see whether it would be well to connect it in any other way if we should not hpapen to get results as good as we expect. ## Those connections are [illeg] give us three different strengths of current. one I believe about 18 amperes, antoher about 22 or 25, and still another method of connecting gives about 33. I should think that the middle [illeg] would be the best, and I would have him connect it in that way first to see how it acts."
