Abstract

"Your favor of yesterday is at hand. ## I understood you to say that the freight to Schenectady was 1.75 per ton. At your quotation this would make the price of No. 1 Iron 17.25 at the furnace. As you well know, Iron has not appreciated to this price, and I do not think that our people at Schenectady will be willing to pay that price. Your price should not be, taking into consideration quotations received from other parties no more favorably situated than you are as to freight, over [$16?] at the furnace. This with the $1.75 freight would make [illeg] which I think would be a very fair price indeed. We are selling you a first-class Ore, as you well know, at a low price, and in return you certainly should make us as good prices for Pig Iron as you make anybody else. ## I have written to the Mill to find out why they do not deliver you ore faster. I cnanot understand why you have not received at least enough to keep you going as we had a considerable stock ahead at the time you gave me the order to deliver 10 tons per day to you."
