[D8959ABO], Letter from George Edward Gouraud to Thomas Alva Edison, May 16th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your telegram date from New-York 13th inst, as follows:- ### Gouraud, London. Cable date of ‘mailing Australian from England. Edison’. ### also on the 14th inst I received telegram addressed ‘Gouraud Norwood’ as follows ### ‘Cable date when Australian Applications ‘Case 80 were mailed. Edison’. ### Before the receipt of your cable of 14th inst I replied with respect to the above as follows:- ### ‘Noside New-York. Specifications mailed ‘Australia 10th May’. ### Confirming the above I have to explain that it of course took some time to have the necessary printing done, but no delay was lost in this respect and copies of the English Specification were duly mailed to my Australian Agents by last week’s mail which left London on Friday, and I cabled you accordingly. There is only a weekly regular mail to Australia from London, and I was unable in consequence of the length of the Drawings to have them ready to forward with the Specification. These, however, are following by to-morrow mail, so that you may yourself calculate upon the probable time of their arrival, allowing of course a fair margin of time for the Agents to prepare the necessary documents for filing. I am writing my Agents to cable me immediately after they file intimating the same to me, when I shall notify you promptly. ### I have had no advice from my Continental Agents as to the filing in the respective European countries, but I need hardly point out that the length of the Specification will cause some delay in translation. - I am, however, urging the Agents to file as quickly as they can, consistent of course with efficiency."
