[D8839ACK1], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Thomas Alva Edison, November 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"We enclose herewith a letter from the Cie. Continentale Edison, under date 16th ult., in relation to two patents which have been taken out in your name in France, as follows:-- ### No. 187662, dated December 17, 1887, Improvements in Electrical Lamps. Set 69, dated November 22, 1887, Electrical Motors. ### The Cie. Continentale Edison in their letter to us, call attention to the treaty of the 5th of November, 1886, signed on your behalf and on behalf of this Company, by Mr. Francis R. Upton, and more particularly do they refer to Article 4 of the said contract, which latter is quoted in their letter. ### The Compagnie Continentale Edison asks for an explanation as to why these patents were not offered to them, and we will be glad to hear from you at your early convenience, so that we may communicate with the French Company more fully than we have already done." Yours very truly, A.O. Tate
