[D8135ZBF], Letter from Joshua Franklin Bailey, Theodore Puskas to Thomas Alva Edison, September 2nd, 1881

Abstract

Re Swan's and Fox's French and British patents. "The lamps shown by Swan in the Exposition are very uneven in their intensity..about every third or fourth carbon hardly in a state of incandescence." Also run hot. "The Fox lamps make very little show." The Fox lamps started a fire to the decorations. "Armengaud is of opinion that the seizure of Maxim was most opportune as he thinks Maxim would very soon hav taken a suit demanding the nullity of your patents, which..would have ben very embarrasing."
