[D8941AAV], Letter from Everett Frazar to Alfred Ord Tate, June 26th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I am much pleased to learn from your special letter of the 21st Inst. That you are intending to take a trip to Europe, leaving July 2nd, and that you will be glad to take up personally with the Berlin Co. the matter of my firms’ agencies for Mr. Edison’s incandescent lighting. What we desire and felt confident all along would result, is that we shall maintain the agency of the Edison light in Japan, China and Korea, without interference from the Berlin Co. If, however, you find that it is impossible by legal or other means to stop them from making Edison dynamos, armature and lamps and sending them to these countries, selling in direct competition with us, some arrangement should be made whereby my firms can have exclusive control of the name Edison, when attached to electric material for Edison incandescent lighting. I ought to communicate with my partners in Japan and China upon this subject before outlining any special arrangement, but of course there is no time to do this previous to your leaving on July 2nd. Can you not favor me with a call within the next few days, letting me know by note or telephone at about what time I may expect you and I will arrange accordingly. Perhaps a mutual personal conference may suggest to us some mode of procedure satisfactory to all concerned under the circumstances. Please let me know at convenience.####Yours very truly,####Everett Frazar####P.S Can you not give me the lowest prices to be charged, as for Phono CL for advise to why --- him?####[name mentions: A.O. Tate, Berlin Co., Thos Edison]
