I am trying to obtain a daily mailing list of people that have recently obtained a patent from the USPTO. At present, a daily list of new patents can be retrieved from   [obscured]  /googlebooks/uspto-patents.html; but this resource only has the Patent Numbers, Name, City and State of applicants/inventors; but, I also need the person's mailing address which can be obtained within some of the documents on file at:   [obscured]  /external/portal/pair or at   [obscured]  /googlebooks/uspto-patents-pair.html

I am looking for a programmer that can do XML parsing and write scripts that can connect to these APIs, maybe SOAP or JSON. Basically parse the 2 resources available (above) to get me a daily XLS file emailed to me that has individual records with the following fields:

Patent #
Title of invention
Issue Date
Summary (if possible)
Inventor first name
Inventor Last name
Inventor Address
Inventor City
Inventor State
Inventor Zip
Inventor Telephone
