Abstract

"Attached is a copy of the Specification of Letters Patent No. 365,978, dated July 5th, 1887, issued to Mr. Edison on a System of Electrical distribution. ### The number of the patent appears in the list attached to our General City Contract, but I am unable to lay my hand on either the orginal patent or any assignment of it to this Company. ### I presume there is no doubt that it should be assigned to us and if so, I shall be glad if you can obtain and send me the original letters patent if in Mr. Edison's possession, to enable me to get the necessary assignment prepared by Mr. Dyer. ### Your early attention to this matter will oblige." [TAE marginalia: "Johnnie see if you can find these in the safe."
