[SB012BBI], Letter from Willis N Stewart to Thomas Alva Edison, October 27th, 1882

Abstract

[from Santiago] Get many inquiries about using electric power to drain silver and copper mines in Chile. Steam and water power generally plentiful. Need compact 2-3 hp motor; if you can provide this I can sell many. Regarding our conversation in NY about electric rwy, am investigating here; especially suited to arid northern regions. Am ready to guarantee formation of a strong company for this.
