[D8839AAJ], Letter from Drexel Morgan & Co to Thomas Alva Edison, February 27th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"We have received from our Paris House today, a copy of a letter, dated 15 Feby, addressed to them by the Copagnie Continentale Edison, of which the following is a translation,-- ### Paris, 15 Feby, 1888. ### Messrs. Drexel Harjes & Co ### Gentlm, ### We have communicated to our Council of Administration your letter of 10th Feby, through which Messr Drexel Morgan & Co answer our letter of 13th Jany. Please inform them that it is impossible for us--at present at least and considering the competition--to accept their claims for business to be transacted in Portugal. We can consent to pay them a royalty of 5% on our electrical material, patented or not patented, but not on the total installation. TAE marg:: "Upton--The 5 pct on Electrical Appliance would be very small. Can't you arrange with Coster for Dyer to take hold of the matter and have Dyer act as agent for sale of goods etc in Portugal paying costs and all things so it 5 pct"]
