[LB011457], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Charles Batchelor, March 16th, 1882

Editor's Notes

I beg to enclose you herewith further Statements of accounts (showing $1278.95 still to be drawn for by me) together with Bills of Lading attached. These bills include all orders I have from you with the exception of some drawings from the Lamp Factory and machine works.##The two bills of lading for shipments to Edison Electric Company Genoa and Edison Electric Company Naples includes (besides the various articles itemized on the Invoices attached to them) the Dynamo (three to Naples and seven to Genoa) which were billed to your Company in my accounts last rendered to you##The shipment to Antwerp by S. S. Nederland include three Dynamos (Billed to you in my last account) the lamps and sundries as per statement attached to B. L. which together with these Dynamos form three plants (60 lights) and extra case from Bergmann & Co & nine cases of wire [completing] order for $5000 sundries. These two latter items were billed to you in my last account.##The shipment to Hamburg by S. S. G[allent] (Bill of Lading no [1]) include seven Dynamos, (billed to you in my last account) the lamps & sundries going therewith as per statement attached to B/L. and one case (no. 501) as per second statement attached to B/L. I thought it as well to send other case (no 501) to Hamberg as I thought that probably you might find it necessary to get a permit in order to take some of its contents into France without [vitiatury] Patents.##The shipment to Hamburg (Bill of Lading no. 2) by S. S. [Gallent] is composed of the remainder of second order for $5000 Sundries as per invoice attached.##I have also charged your Company with 25 Patent models (Continental Patent no 4) which were shipped to Mr E.H. Johnson London for delivery to Brewer & Jensen). These models are for use in European Countries the Patent rights for which are vested in the Paris Companies. I think it would be as well for you to undertake to supply these models as you have the facilities for doing so.
