[LB011227A], Letter from Richard Nott Dyer to Edison Lamp Co, February 8th, 1882

Abstract

Your letter of 4th inst. received. The law in England does not require patentees to mark their goods with the date of the patent or patents: it leaves it to their discretion. Consequently some mark their goods "By Royal Letters Patent" or "By Her Majesty's Royal Letters Patent" or "Smith's Patent," and so on. This comparatively seldom that the date of the patent is mentioned, and as before stated, that is not necessary.##It would not do to put the same label on lamps for England that you use in this Country. I would suggest that you use simply the "Edison's Patent," and if possible stamp it permanently on the goods.
