[D8833ACI], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Edison United Manufacturing Co, Charles Edward Chinnock, September 11th, 1888

Abstract

"Your favor regarding Sawyer-Mann co., received. The Sawyer-Mann Co., are under an agreement to the Court, not to sell lamps with Edison Plugs. If they can be caught selling lamps with Edison Plugs and lamps in which the connection between the cap and ring is made of plaster, it will be a very great service to the Patent Attorneys, when they appear in Court next fall. ### Mr. Edison told me that this would be contempt of Court, and that he considered it of great importance to obtain evidence that the Sawyer-Mann people would sell such plugs. ### I think that you might write to some of your agents, confidentially, and ask them to see if they cannot obtain such lamps. The Lamp Co., will be willing to buy the lamps from you at the price paid for them. I have sent a copy of the correspondence to Dyer & Sealey." [sockets]
