[D8701AAW], Letter from Edward Hibberd Johnson to Thomas Alva Edison, December 13th, 1887

Editor's Notes

Bergmann has agreed to pay Stieringer & associates royalties on certain patents; Dyer now claiming royalties under those patents for safety catches of flat or link pattern and non-combustible bases; haven't been able to bring Bergmann and Dyer to agreement; "As you know perfectly well, I did in the old Menlo original lighting a great manny things for which Stieringer subsequently took patents"; Stieringer's royalties were for fixtures only; Dyer is attempting include other things; you will have to decide on the merits of each case at a meeting; "They offer us large sums of money to cancel the contract," so they can sell "to other than the Edison shops"; we won't and must not permit enlargement of what the patents contain.
