[D8954ABH], Letter from Richard Nott Dyer to Thomas Alva Edison, March 13th, 1889

Editor's Notes

Philadelphia Mar 13 1889##My dear Mr Edison##I am down here taking Professor Barker's testimonyin the fibrous carbon case having finished with Professor Brackett yesterday at Princeton.##Your testimony in the case, which for the first time I read on yesterday coming down in the train, seems to be all that could be desired. After a careful reading of it. I do not see how it could be improved. I wish you would read the inlcosed letters from Seely and Rogers received this morning. You will see that my devotion to the ccause of my client and my complete burial in the work has been made the opportunity to undermine me. I take it from the facts state in the letters of Seely and Rogers that Lowrey is in full charge. The copy of the Canadian decision was received after I left N.Y. I had intended going over the thing very carefullly with Mr. Seward and getting him to give us an opinion. He is the man to do it, because he has had the experience of the whole litigation on the subject and he is on the right side of the question. He can also keep us in the case before Judge Wallace. If the ball is started rolling in the right direction by Judge Wallace, it will keep on in that direction & that is, other circuit Judges are liable to follow him.##I fully believe that if we are able to assist in the argument of the first cases in the Circuit Co with the Canadian decision will have the sting taken out of it. Yours very truly Rich N Dyer
