Abstract

"I am in receipt of your letter of 8th instant, in regard to the Mexican patent quotation, and have consulted Mr. Edison as to the advisability of recognizing the two Mexican patents by the payment of the fees due thereon, which, I understand from your letter, amount to $300. Mr. Edison thinks that as the U.S. applications which correspond with these two Mexican patents are not important, we may as well secure the latter by paying the fees. The amount should be telegraphed to Mr. Luis Mendez. I could arrange to telegraph it, but I think it would be very much better to have all business of this kind pass through your hands. I do not wish to open up any direct correspondence with Mr. Mendez, but desire to conduct our business with him through yourselves. I will send you a check to-morrow on account of bills of yours which we have in the office. You can proceed at once to take out a third Mexican patent, including all the U.S. Patents that have been issued up to the present time, with the exception of those embodied in Sets 84 and 85." Yours very truly, AO Tate
