Thomas A. Edison, Esq.,
Orange, New Jersey.
Dear Mr. Edison:
Re Your Wireless Telegraph Patent. I am informed by the Secretary of the Marconi Company, that your patent is now under investigation by the attorneys for the Company, Messrs. Betts, Betts, Sheffield & Betts.
You will probably remember Frederick H, Betts, and his connection with some of the old patent litigation.
If, as a result of Mr. Betts' examination, the Company should determine to negotiate for the purchase of this patent, I think they will appoint some representative to call on you and open the negotiation with you direct.
This would be the better plan on all accounts, on your account as well, and my recommendation is that instead of putting any one off who should feel like coming to you, you should on the other hand receive him and open the negotiation.
Whoever comes to see you will probably telephone you and ask for an appointment, and in that case it would be well for you to at once notify me, so that I might come to Orange and see you in advance of your interview.
I can facilitate matters better in this way than in any other.
Yours, truly,
Eugene H. Lewis
