[D8954ADC], Letter from Sherburne Blake Eaton to Thomas Alva Edison, October 7th, 1889

Editor's Notes

My dear Sir: I intend to go out and dine with you, and spend the evening. But the conference on the Filament case has lasted all day in my office until 5-30, and the accumulated work of the day will compel me to continue at work this evening. I am pushing things all along the line, and it keeps me busy day and night.##I procured a certified copy of Bradley's decision late this afternoon. I am keeping the typewriters at work to night making copies. One copy has just come in, and I send it to you by bearer, thinking you may like to look it over this evening. Please keep it.##When I took the lawyers up stairs to lunch today, Mr. Kerr called me over to a table where he, Westinghouse and associates were lunching. Mr. Westinghouse remarked to me that he felt very much hurt by your calling him a "shyster" in this mornings "Herald." He was really cut up about it.##I shall certainly go out to see you tomorrow morning. Please present my compliments to the Countess, and believe me to remain, Sinccerely yours S.B. Eaton [name mention Mr. Kerr]
