Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


London 28th June 1901
Hermann E. Dick, Esq.,
c/o Thomas A. Edison, Esq.,
Orange, New Jersey, U.S.A.
Dear Sir,
Replying to yours of the 17th June, I would state that the parties I referred to in my letter of the 8th June were the head of one of the largest electrical concerns in Europe and his electrical engineer, who is also recognized as being one of the highest authorities in Europe in his line, with whom I have had business relations for some time.
The matter of the Edison battery came up in the course of a conversation, and I simply repeated to him the statements regarding the battery which had appeared the public Press. I was asked if I could obtain the information which I requested you to send me, and I stated that I would write you. You will see, therefore, that what I stated was no breach of confidence in any way.
As you seem worried however, lest I may have said something which may injure "my good standing with the people with whom I have talked" I will show them your letter without further comment.
I think in fairness to myself you should withdraw the entirely uncalled for reference coupling myself with Col. Gouraud, and that the spirit of your letter was not warranted by any action I have taken in this matter.
Yours truly
Jos. D. Baucus
