Abstract

"A Mr. C. H. Waterman, a Salesman in the employ of Lee & Sturgis, paper stock dealers in New York, who is here frequently, talks a great deal about his former connection with H. S. Maxim and assumes to be in possession of information about that person's first efforts with incandescent lights valuable to the Edison Company. I am well assured that he did at one time have business relations with Maxim and that some trouble arose between them, but how close that connection was I do not know. In view of the rumors of coming litigation I take the liberty of placing this before you for what it is worth."
