Dear Mr. Edison:
I beg to enclose you herewith legal [brief?] of the Jungner case as it stood up to Jan. 4 - 1902. The [illegible] are report of Prof von [Knorre?] which is of much greater importance, which is of much greater importance, I have sent to Bergmann, and he will send you a copy this week.
You can get the evidence as to the actual working of batteries made by Jungner in strict accordance with his Patents, by applying to the General Electric Co's. [Lyon?] office for copies of letters addressed by them about two years ago to one Fritz Schmidt, Stockholm. These letters give cause of the failure of the Jungner battery, and are very interesting. They should win

[TAE Marginalia] your case. If you cannot get them, I can, by coming to America, which I do not desire to do.
Similar experiments with same results, were made about the same time by the Westinghouse Co., the [Ed.?] Storage Co., of Philadelphia, and by a party in Washington.
The proof as to similar results on this side can be had in Belgium and Germany, and this I can get if so desired.
Prof. Knorre has, since his report, made further experiments re silver, and I can get this report also.
All these reports were secured by me at my own expense and on my own responsibility, so that I am violating no confidence in sending them to you.
If you can, when ready, give me a chance in the question business, where I can get ample capital I should like to know it soon, as I must have employment at an early date.
I am also going to send you soon details of some valuable automobile Patents which I hope you can use in America.
Sincerely yours,
W. N. Stewart.
