[D8954ABJ], Letter from Edw H Rogers to Richard Nott Dyer, March 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[This is an enclosure from the previous entry, D894ABH] I arrived from Philadelphia this morning and have your telegram. Dr. Barker's cross examination was begun yesterday morning at nine o'clock and continued until eleven o'clock last night. On account of Dr. Barker's engagements at the college we were not able to proceed with his cross examinaiton to day and it is kept open until his testimony in the fibrous carbon case is out of the way.##I hardly know what to say about having Prof. Brackett testify. I think your experience with him in the fibrous carbon case ought to determine the matter. Unless he is a very excellent witness he cannot in my judgment strengthen the case.##I have seen Mr. Griffin and he will write you about the fibrous carbon case.##A copy of the opinion in the Canadian case has been received. Mr. Johnson has sent for it to give it to Mr. Lowrey, who is to prepare an opinion as to its effect upon the United States patent. There is a case on the calendar in this District which will shortly come before Judge Wallace which will raise the question as to how far the term of an American patent is affected by such a decision as has just been made in the Edison case in Canada. Mr. Seward wrote Mr. Johnson advising him of it, and Mr. Johnson has also turned that letter over to Mr. Lowrey. Mr. Seely was at Mr. Johnson's office when the latter received this letter from Mr. Seward and Mr. Johnson then announced that he should send it at once to Mr. L:owrey for his consideration.
