Abstract

Referring to letter & Power of Attorney sent herewith I very strongly object to selling my future inventions & certainly think that in any event the sale should be limited to three years future inventions. My reason for this is that I propose experimenting with a view to getting electricity directly from coal & I think there is great promise of my succeeding I should most strongly object to paul with so valuable an invention to these Indian & Colonial Companies as if I ever succeed it will be of immense value. Have the agreement drawn so as not to include this but it should be done without making apparent what we want to do.##You had better say nothing at all about this to anyone else
