Abstract

"I think you may be interested in hearing that the appeal of our Company, which is virtually one against the Brush Coy, was opened by the Attorney General (Sir Richard Webster) on Saturday the 1st and has been befor ethe Lords Justices of Appeal almost every day since up to yesterday evening, when the Attorney Genl. Concluded his reply, after speaking for 2 days. ### You will remember that the appeal is one against the decision of Mr. Justic Kay in which he held that your Patent of 1879 was bad on more than one ground--want of precision in definition, and want fo sufficient instructions as to the mode in which the filament was to be made being those on which he laid most stress. ### We have, I think, every reason to be satisfied with the aspect of the case in the Court of Appeal, though, of course, we cannot be certain that the Attorney General has done all that he hoped to do until Judgment is actually given. He took extraordinary pains with the Case and I think you may like to have a Copy of the Report of his 2 days speech in reply. ### This I send you by Book Post, and remain, my dear Sir,"
