Abstract

New York, March 4th, 1889####A.O. Tate Esq.####Orange,####N.J.####Dear Sir:--####Referring to your letter of February 25th and to Col. Gouraud's letter of Feb. 26th, we have to say that the working usually required for patents in the European countries is almost nominal and usually consists in having perhaps one of the patented mahines made and operated and procuring a certificate to that effect. The details however differ in the different countries and we think it would be best and safest for Col. Gouraud as he suggests to get definite information from his agent in each country of what is required there, then if it is necessary for Mr. Edison to do any thing Col. Gouraud can notify him. We do not think that Col. Gouraud should rely upon Mr. Edison to tend to these matters without any further action on his part as he says because the times at which the working must be done would have to be noted and the working for each country taken care of in time, and it would be much easier for Gouraud to keep the run of these things and to notify you, than for you to attempt to do it here.####Yours truly,####Dyer Seely####[Enclosure]:####16th February 1889.####T.A. Edison Esq.,####Orange.####Dear Sir--####'The working of foreign patents.'####As you are doubtless aware some of the countries require by their laws, that the patented apparatus shall within certian times, be manufactured in the country. Kindly inform me whether you are sufficiently informed as to what manufacturing is to be done so that we do not lose any patents by our default in this respect. If you are in possession of the necessary infromation, I presume without further action on my part, I can rely upon you to put me in possession of the necessary facilities either other than money for accomplishing this object. If you are not in possession of the necessary infromation kindly so inform me and I will get it from the Agents in the various countries.#####I have just received notice from Austria that we must commencce to manufacture on case 84 in April next.####Faithfully yours,####G.E. Gouraud.####Thu####[name mentions: Thos Edison, A.O. Tate, G.E Gouraud, Dyer & Seely]
