Abstract

I was very much pleased to hear from you as to Mr Rosevelt of the Telephone trial at Edinboro, and to learn that my inventing of the Carbon Transmitter has been declared to cover the [insulated] Microphone. I read the evidence given by the various witnesses and was extremely gratified at the positiveness of Sir William Thomsons testimony##This [division] strengthens my belief that when my Electric Light patents, exhibits are much stronger than those I have on the Telephone, are are controled in a British court. it will be found that they hold the monopoly of the system of Electric Lighting by Incandescence and that we shall have good reaons for mutual congratulations, just as we have in this telephone decision.
