[D8503ZER], Letter from Strong (Woodbridge) and Son to John Canfield Tomlinson, December 26th, 1885

Editor's Notes

[Letterhead of Woodbridge Strong & Son, Attorneys and Counsellors at Law; handwritten heading of Seyfert v. Edison.] In November 1884, you wrote that TAE did not wish to place himself in contempt by virtue of his disobedience to the order requiring him to make discovery, and that if we would write you showing that the service was obligatory, he would attend for examination. Since then, the question of the validity of the service has been discussed on behalf of TAE and decided against him twice (see Docs D8503ZEG and D8503ZAN1]. We sent Schenck a certified copy of the Supreme Court's order advising an attachment against TAE for contempt, which he forwarded to you. We have not yet issued the writ because we supposed (assuming the sincerity of your original letter) that TAE would now signify his willingness to appear. If you will notify us immediately on receipt of this that TAE will submit to an examination as directed by the order, we will arrange it on a day you indicate. If we do not hear from you, we will delay no longer the proceedings for contempt.
