Abstract

"Since Painter & Hubbard have refused my donation, They only thing for them to do is to bring a suit to establish equities-- ## As for stopping the Graphone, U.H.P. must know the fatal fact that our application was not filed until a foreign patent had been issued-- Had it been filed like our lamp it might have some show We cant stop anybody-- I have consumed all along that the business was open, and that with my experience & facilities I should have an advantage in competition sufficient to pay a good dividend notwithstanding and I have made the offer to P & others so they should realize in part at least what they originally expected = their rejection of the same put it out of the pale of friendship & honor-- & places it on a business basis."
