[D8370B], Letter from George W Dyer to Thomas Alva Edison, January 2nd, 1883

Editor's Notes

Call your attn to imptc of getting ready to testify in interference matters, esp yourself, Latimer, & Weston on electroplating points. They've been put off many times, can't be put off much longer. Want you to start next week; must give some time to intfs or they'll be a snarl and you'll have judgments against you. At request of Co., have investigated dynamo application of Alteneck. As it stands, the WU through a former interference are the only parties who can oppose the issue of patent to Alteneck with claims upon the longitudinal winding of armatures. Suspicious of WU's good faith, as they have make favorable arrangement for this invention. "I have written repeatedly for weeks to have the Rowland appn filed, so as to get a standing in opposition in the Patent Office and understand from Dick [Richard Dyer?] that the proper papers were executed long ago and have beenin Major Wilbers hands all this time. I think this matter of sufficient importantce to merit your personal attention." Enclose acct for $100 on magneto intfs.
