Title

[D8630I], Letter from Charles Batchelor to Thomas Alva Edison, January 20th, 1886

Editor's Notes

As you are a party to the German Contract, and you there agree to give every 6 months to the Compagnie Continentale Edison, to be transferred by them to the German Co., the cost price of the lamp in NY, it is necessary that you do this or have the EEL Co. of Europe do it immediately, as Siemens' arrangement is to pay royalty to the German Co., which royalty is not to be more than 33 1/3% of the cost price of the lamp as made in NY or any other Edison factory. My idea of the cost price of the lamp is the price at which the Lamp Co. sells to outside parties. Is not that your idea of it? Will you see that this price is sent forward to the Comp. Continentale immediately and also see that this is sent every 6 months. [TAE Marg.]: "Insull consult with Upton and let me know result. I think about 33 cents is the figure."
