Title

[D8338ZAR1], Letter from Theodore Waterhouse to Thomas Alva Edison, July 7th, 1883

Editor's Notes

[SELECTABLE or at least a good reference] MR. Johnson will proabably have informed you of the negotiations which have been entered into with the Swan Company for Amalgamation of the Company. Writes 4 pages on reasons board reluctantly considers this step. Weakness of pats (only 1 to secure system is Nov 1879 carbon filament spec). Financial position. Legal and other difficulties of competition. See best chance for monopoly position in concert with Swan; main problem is the terms.
