[LB025423], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate, Edison Electric Light Co of Europe Ltd to Compagnie Continentale Edison, November 7th, 1888

Editor's Notes

We have received your letter of 16th October, Mr. Edison you refer to certain statements that have been made by Mr. Duncan to the effect that the representations of the American Edison Light Company in their patent litigation, has declared void the Austrian Edison patents on the incandescent lamp.##We know nothing whatever of Mr. Duncon, nor are we able to confirm the statement with which the American Edison Light Co's representative is credited, and it appears to us that in any event you have exaggerated the importance of the rumor. The Austrian Edison patents could not be invalidated simply by the [xxx] of this representative. If it were in the power of a foreign Company to situate patents in European countries merely by the expression of a opinion there would be absolutely no protection enforced patents in those countries, a condition of affairs polish surely does not exist.
