[LB015284], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Edison's Indian and Colonial Electric Co, February 8th, 1883

Abstract

Your favor of 27th January came to hand this morning.##The Drawings in the Patent you refer to are simply to cover up points and prevent other people from getting ahead of me in the Patent office. I do not believe in the use of either Arc Lights or [accumulators] the former are not near so reliable as 100 candle Incandescent lamps and the later are so very uneconomical that it is far cheaper to use the Dynamo direct.##I think if you see my representative (Mr Ed Johnson) who is now in England he will give you my views on this and other subjects in connection with Electric Lighting Mr Johnsons address in care of Edison Electric Light Co 74 Coleman Street London E. C.
