Abstract

I have your letter of the 18th instant.## I appreciate very highly your kind acknowledgments of my labors, and would be glad if it were in my power to grant the request that you make of me in regard to naming one of your movements the "Edison Watch." ## During the past few years a great many articles have been placed upon the market, and my name attached to them by unauthorized parties. In suppressing such actions as these I have always taken the stand that my name is used only in connection with my own inventions. It is necessary that I should maintain this position owing to the number of people who are interested in inventions which I have placed upon the market. ## It is with much regret that I am obliged to refuse your request, as I appreciate the feelings which prompted you to make it. It would, however, be inconsistent with the position which I have always assumed where my name has been connected with invention other than my own. ## Again thanking you for the onor which you have paid me…
