[D8734ABF], Letter from John William Lieb to Edison Lamp Co, December 1887

Item

Abstract

D8734ABF is contained as a quote within D8734ABE. "In regard to our Company, it is very prosperous, especially the Central Station is doing well; it will pay a dividend of 5% on all its business, and the Central Station has been earning at the rate of 6 1/2% on the average, with a heavy amount accredited to depreciation. We are selling quite a number of lamps to firms using other dynamos than the Edison. There is also more of confidence in the value of the patents, and I should not be surprised if some action against flaring infringements should be taken ere long."
