[LB014114], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Societe Electrique Edison, September 13th, 1882

Editor's Notes

I duly received your favor of 24th August##You are somewhat mistaken in your ideas as to Mr Dyers duties in connection with the cases sent you. He prepares them from notes & rough sketches made by myself and his charges are so arranged as to be proportionately born by the various companies taking out my patents in different countries. The parparation of these cases often involves a great deal of study & research and I cannot well see how he can reduce his charge to you. The American Company pays the same as yourself and the English Company double the amount as Mr Dyer has to give their cases more attention. My Patent affairs have often been a cause of great loss to me in the past in consequence of of the care bestowed on them having been of a very indifferent character. Since Mr Dyer has had charge of my cases the services rendered have been of a very different character and the charges made by him are very reasonable as compared with those of other patent attornies I would add that whenever you may require assistance of any kind Mr Dyer will always be most willing to give it to you.##Trusting this explanation will prove satisfactory I remain, Dear Sirs
