Abstract

You will doubtless remember having some conversation with Mr. Insull, when he was in London, with relation to the patents I have taken out and applied for subsequent to the signing of the agreement between myself and the Edison Electric Light Co.##I beg to enclose you herewith further account, showing total amount expended by me of $11,215.28 I am very anxious to make some kind of an arrangement with your Company, by which they will either make some settlement with me in relation to this matter, by which the patents go to your Company, or else I will serve formal notice, in accordance with the terms of my contract with the Edison Electric Light Co., of London, so as to enable me to make other disposition of those patents, if your Company, as the successors of the Edison Electric Light Co., do not require them. I would suggest that the patents should all be turned over to your Company, and that the enclosed account should be passed to your debit with me, as against the amount that the Edison El;ectric Light Co., of London, advanced on the central station dynamos, which we manufactured on their order, and which we are now holding for their account. Or in other words; that I should buy from you the central station dynamos up to the amount that I have expended in connection with taking out patents in England since the signing of the agreement between myself and the Edison Electric Light Co., to London.##Enclosure.
