Abstract

Harrison, N.J., March 9th, 18889####A.O. Tate, Esq., Private Secretary,####Laboratory of T.A. Edison,####Orange, N.J.####Dear Sir:--####Recording the letter of the Allegemeine Elektricitats=Gesellschaft, the objection that Frazar & Co. make is that the goods are sold in Japan using the name of Edison. It is to this that their great objection has been made. That others should be using Edison's name in Japan, thus robbing Mr. Edison of the use of his name which is his own property, to the benefit of those who have recceived no license to use it, and give him no benefit for such use.####I think that strong influences might be brought to bear upon the German Company by which they will withdraw from the stand that the whole world belongs to them, thus leading to active competition between the various Edison interests in all parts of the world. If this can be done, of course it will be far better than just stopping them from making use of Mr. Edison's name in Japan,####Yours very truly,####Francis R. Upton####Treasurer####[name mention: Thos Edison, Frazar & Co., Allgemeine Elektricitats Gesellschaft, Francis R Upton, A.O Tate]
