Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


So. Bethlehem, Pa. October 12th, 1900
Messrs Pilling & Crane,
Girard Building,
Philadelphia, Pa.
With reference to the Edison Briquettes which we are receiving from you, beg to advise you that according to our Laboratory reports, cars Nos. 1266 and 38661 averaged .045 in phosphorous and cars Nos. 38063, 2585, 38592, 38611, 37676, 487, 4735 and 37320 averaged .043 in Phosphorous. Some later shipments we found to average .040 in Phosphorous.
It was the agreement when we purchased this ore, that you would ship ore running about .035 in Phosphorous, and that in any event, it should not exceed the high limit of .040.
We still have samples of the lots above referred to, and if there is any question in your mind as to the correctness of our analyses, we will be glad to submit them to an independent Chemist, and suggest Porter W. Shimer of Easton, to make the determination.
Please advise me what concession in price we may expect as covering the lots above referred to.
Yours truly,
(Signed) Wm. M. Tobias,
P.A. Bethlehem Steel Co.
