This letterbook covers the period February-September 1896. Most of the correspondence is by Walter S. Mallory, vice-president of the company; John F. Randolph, treasurer; and Edwin I. Olmsted, purchasing agent. The letters deal mainly with personnel matters, company financial obligations, sand orders, equipment, and supplies. There is also correspondence about renovations at the Ogden works. Other items pertain to insurance and to the company's credit rating. The spine is labeled "Letter Book From Feb. 18, 1896 To Sept. 1, 1896 N.Y. Office." The book contains 1031 numbered pages and an index. Approximately 5 percent of the book has been selected. Most of the handwritten letters are in very faint green ink and may be difficult to read. Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
