Abstract

"Will you ask Mr. Edison if he remembers ever having assigned his interest in the Woodward Patent to the Edison Electric Light Co.? The Edison Company has his receipt for payment by them for his interest in the patent but cannot find the instrument of assignment. ### I enclose you two Letters Patent of Mr. Edison on Ore Milling, which belongs to the Ore Milling Co. The Light Company found these patents in their safe. I also enclose you assignment from Mr. Edison to the Light Co. of 9 U.S. Letters Patent, which should be assigned to the Light Co. under the old agreement between Mr. Edison and the Light Co. The patents are dated in 1887 but the applications were filed in 1883 during the existence of this contract. Will you kindly have Mr. Edison execute it as indicated in pencil and return to me? Do you want copies of the patents? If you have not the copies, will you let me know and I will get them for you? Yours truly, A.W. Kiddle [Marginalia: "Tate= See if any these patent are after contract also let me know what they use them might be some not for L. Co. E." "Don’t remember" "T.A.E. Here are copies of patents named in assignment. Please give me the information ask for re Woodward patent. A.O.T."]
