[LB030307], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Richard Nott Dyer, June 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

"I enclose herewith a letter which I have received this morning from Col. Gouraud, in regard to English phonograph patents, Cases 86 & 87, together with two reports made by Sir Fred'k. Bramwell, under the headings "Case 86 Patent No. 12,595 of 1st of September, 1888," and "Case 87, Patent No. 12,594, of 1st September, 1888." ### Mr. Edison is out of town and will not be here until tomorrow. Col. Gouraud states in his letter enclosed, that it is of the greatest importance that these documents should be considered immediately, as they have to be returned in time for filing by the 29th June. Otherwise the patents will be lost. To avoid any delay, therefore, I send all the documents to you by Dr. Schulze Berge. In a separate package he will hand you a number of documents, which I believe relate to the graphophone and to claims of Anders and Berliner. I have cabled Gouraud, as he requests, advising him that these papers have arrived. Will you kindly give them the attention they require." Yours truly, AO Tate
