Abstract

In receipt of yours of the 22nd.###Note your comments re: water machine, and am glad you sustain me in the position I have taken; you may rest assured that the machine will never leave the lab until it is proven beyond any question that it is what we want; Swarts has instructions from your father and myself to pick out any flaws in the machine or system and not let any defects pass; we have assured him that we will sustain him in any position he takes; it is just as much to my interest as to the rest of us not to do any more experimenting at Humboldt; there is now no reason not to test at the lab with some twenty tons of ore.###Note your comments re: money [last line of page may be missing]###In re: $100 that is all right. I had forgotten it myself, but had a memorandum, and would not have forgotten to charge you up with 2% per month for interest.###"In my letter the other day about finances, I neglected to state, that I would have probably $700.00 come in with a few days from the ore deal. We will get back our expenses, which were about $250.00 and about $450.00 profit on the 900 tons shipped. This is the ore about which I spoke to you, that we handled and shipped. That isn't bad as a starter, is it?"
