[CE88064], Letter from Louis Rau to Edison Electric Light Co of Europe Ltd, November 30th, 1888

Abstract

We are in receipt of your esteemed favor of the 7th inst. Would you kindly explain to me why you only say in your letter: "that you are not able to confirm the statement, with which the Light Co. representative is credited." Is it possible for you to assure us that the statement in question has neer been made? or if it has been made, would you oblige us to let us know what arrangements have been given by the lawyer in court for such a statemnt.##It is evident that no patent could be declared void [unclear Latin phrase] on a simple declaration of the inventor or of his representative, but you will surely admit, that, if the reasons stated in such a declaration should seem plausible, they would endanger the very existence of the patent. Should same be attacked in court, be a dangerous weapon in the hands of infringers.##Expecting also yor reply concerning the French patents taken out in 1887 by Mr. Edison.
