7 Your faves of the 6th inst received. Your very kind explana-~ tory letter has been carefully gone over. There is no objection that I know of as to changing the Beeee of elevator to 50 ft. per mimte. instead of 150 ft. which we are at present running,if you are satisfied it will do our work.

I do not think there is any possibility of gatting any rope to stand this tramenteiia weight Leaving or taking the ore in these buckets into consideration. It does geem to me that if we could get steel buckets that would weigh about one quarter of what these iron ones weigh it would stand the load these carry.

‘I think it would be a g00d idea for us to order buckets for

#2 Elevator as soon as we receive drawings for the changed ones of which

you say you will send us a Copy .e : -

Regarding the time of changing: buckets we are at a loss to know just how these buckets are to be ptt on without erecting them one by one on the top. We have one of the best men I think you had around your mill in charge oF our mili here and he knows of no plan for shortening the ti ime of putting in of these’ buckets. I would be obliged to you if you would furnish a man that will arrange to put-.on a dozen - buckets at a time, this will certainly help us out: which I-kmnow you are willing to doe We herewith send a piece of rope which has been advised bo

by the Roebling people that we use. The ropes are now in place: and ve.

shall commence putting buckets ‘on at once. It will not do ‘any harm to

Mr. W.:S. Mallory. ee Dear Sir:-- With this, I attach a report of Mr. Elliott, regard... ' ing the titie,etc. of the land at Iona Island. Iona Island is the name of the station on the West Shore Radlroad. Whe land is on the main line on the east side of the Hudson and on the north side of a large hill. Mr. Daniel Herbert of Iona Island stands ready to pay one third of the money he receives for hoop poles and have the money remitted directly to Mr. Bdison by the parties to whom he consigns the poles in New York.

Mr. Woolcock approves of Mr. Herbert's proposition as the best one and the arrangement can be closed with Mr. Herbert if Mr. Edison approves of it.

Mr. Howard Scandell, of Iona Island will pay $21.00 per cord for the wood cut and would want five years in which to cut the wood. This seems to be a good price for the wood, #8 it will cost a good deal to take 14 away from the land. I recommend that Mr. Scandell's proposition be accepted and that Mr. Woolcock and I be authorized to arrange with Mr. Scandell regarding cutting. I oo pelieve the best arrangement that can be made is to have Mr. ace ee
