[D8903AAY], Letter from Dick (A.B.) Co to Thomas Alva Edison, December 21st, 1889

Editor's Notes

I have your favor of the 19th inst., and in reply beg to say that it is important that you write me concerning foreign trade of Mimeographs by next mail, as I am negotiating to manufacture them abroad, as you have requested, unless we can make a satisfactory arrangement with you for manufacturing here.##You will remember that different parts of the Mimeographs are patented by us, excepting the process of making the stencil, and no other concern could manufacture the Mimeograph in this country, after our present pattern, without conflicting with Patents which we own, outside of the Patent which you have. It seems unnecessary to delay this matter any length of time, as it is a question of whether a proposition such as you might submit would be satisfactory to us or not. If not, we will answer to that effect by return mail and if it is satisfactory, we will be glad to sign a contract with you to fully protect us.##We urgently ask your prompt attention for the reasons stated above.
