Editor's Notes

Regarding Patents Armengaud guarentees nothing if cannot give him two months prepare filing and cable fortnight before. # I wrote to Dyer about this and received no answer # we lost in Germany on 58, 59 and 60 b/c we did not have sufficient time, though #60 due principally from fact that Hopkinson has done it in England . The paris company also wrote to Dyer about June 11 and got no reply. Cases 62 and 63 (meters and distribution) are ready but I assure you we run great risk of losing them in Germany if you don’t comply with my cable of Jun 9# the german Co. wants all the patents of Edison Company until 1886 anf the above has casued them to threaten us with consequences if the same should occur again. # The german co has rejected claims on you r patent put the Paris company hopes to appeal. The germans seem to be able to cut the best claims out of our applications. I think we should advise our company to let the patent buisness go to onto the hands of the German co. Dyer marg note to Insull: "As you are aware an arrangement has been made to give the [--- ----] all the time they ask for and will see that they get it. I have noted the rejection in Germany of part of case 42. That case is an secondary battery system changing [---] and discharging multiple arc. Dyer"
