[LB012343], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Sherburne Blake Eaton, May 18th, 1882

Editor's Notes

Will send you [cs--] about Faure Battery for [B---tion] in a day or so.##Your memo 15th inst. I return [illegible] letter. He had better take [US] patent out. If they stay [in] [illegible] office they will probably get interference and he will probably have trouble whereas if he gets [them] out Sellon & Volkmann cannot go back of their first foreign patent I am working on Stoarage Batteries but not quite in the same line as Faure, S. & V., &c. Our company might advance the money to [take] out the patents already allowed & make some arrangement, that if his patent should turn out to be essential to my work on Secondary Battery, or if we should want to acquire them for other reasons that we shall have the option to purchase them on some terms to be arranged.##I enclose letter from Wm Kline [illegible] a smart man Supt of [Lake] St [Mich--] [South--] R. R. Telegraph over an immense territory & is considered by men along that line a great Electrician So he might be useful to us.##I enclose a sheet from Iron Age. You may find something in it useful for your Bulletin##Your memo 16th.##The Defects Report is only meant for those engaged in manufacture & for the Coys Engineers I do not think it should be sent round to the Agents nor to Havana##Referring to Bliss' order we have no 20 light Dynamos. The "E." will run 17 as [on] 30 to 32 A lamps##Kruesi is now putting in the Service Pipes & if you drop a note to him he will cut in Winslow Lancer & Co. [By] proper representation I think we can get all the paraffin wire passed.##Kruesi has got a compound that will stand tripical heat.##We certainly do not want to have anything to do with Goebel.
