[D8954ABK], Letter from Dyer and Seely to Alfred Ord Tate, March 19th, 1889

Editor's Notes

New York, March 19th, 1889####Alfred O. Tate Esq.####Orange,####N.J.####[handwritten[: Ok see our letter to Gouraud, under date Mch 25/89 AOT####Dear Sir:--####We have your letter of the 18th inst. Enclosing letters from Col. Gouraud. We see no objection to col. Gouraud having the foreign applications prepared in England, we sending him copies of the specifications and drawings which we filed in the United States Patent Office. We think that if this plan is adopted the best way will be for us to send Col. Gouraud, whenever we file an application in the Patent Office, a copy of the specification and drawing, and in following such plan we ought now to send him copies of all applications which have been filed since the last foreign case was made up. In doing this however the question would arise whether all of these things should be included in foreign patents, and whether Mr. Edison or Col. Gouraud shall decide which are to be patented abroad, and which are unnecessary to patent. You had better see what Mr. Edison thinks about this and if he wishes the decision to remain in his hands let us know and we will bring to the laboratory a set of tracings in the applications in question so that he can select those to be sent abroad. We have been intending to make up a new foreign case as soon as we could find time to do so, but now instead of doing this we will simply send the copies abroad of all the cases or of such as Mr. Edison should designate.
