Abstract

Under my contract with the Edison Electric Light Co. of London, I am compelled to serve them with notice, requesting them either to take over my electric light patents on certain terms, or else signify that they do not intend to avail themselves of their right to acquire them. I shall be glad if you will serve on the Edison Electric Light Co. of London, on my behalf, the necessary notice. In order that you may know exactly what to do, I have requested Messrs. Waterhouse & Winterbottom to supply you with a copy of my agreement with the Edison Co. The notice which you will please serve on the Edison electric Light Co. of London refers to the patents pertaining to my system of electric lighting which you have taken out since the signing of the agreement with them. That is, all patents which are not included in the schedule attached to my agreement with them. I write Messrs. Waterhouse & Winterbottom by this mail, so that you ought to receive a copy of the agreement a few days after this letter reaches you.”
