New York,

Thomas A. Edison, Esq.,
Orange, N. J.
Dear Sir:-
Your favor of the 9th instant has been received, advising us of your dates for use in the Edison--Macdonald interference. We have prepared the statement therefrom and beg to enclose the same here herewith. Please execute the statement and have the same acknowledged before a Notary Public, In the enclosed statement, we state that at about about the time of the conception of the invention, in June, 1898, sketches were made illustrating the same. We presume that this is the fact, since you may in your letter that "a new drawing was made in January, 1899", from which we infer that the previous drawings or sketches had already been made you. The interference is at present suspended by reason of an unimportant and purely formal motion by Macdonald, and it is possible that in the event of a redeclaration thereof a new statement from you will be required. We would like, however, to have the enclosed statement signed and acknowleged by you as soon as possible, in order that we may hold the same in readiness for filing.
Yours very truly,
Dyer Edmonds & Dyer
(F. L. D.) Encl.
