[LB033468], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Eaton and Lewis, November 8th, 1889

Editor's Notes

At Mr. Edison's request, I enclose herewith a letter addressed to him by Mr. George S. Hale, of the firm of Hale and Viske, Attorneys and Counsellors, No. 10 Tremont St., Boston, under date November 4th, 89, and referring: to a suit brought against Mr. Edison some seven years ago by E. Baker Welch for thirty thousand dollars, for the alleged breach of a contract made April 1869, which the said Welch claimed entitled him to one-half the profits in certain inventions for double transmission, and which [unclear] has been renewed recently and the claim amended to two hundred and thirty thousand dollars ($230,000). ### This communication refers to Mr. Milton F. Adams, as a witness for Mr. Edison. Mr. Adams is at the present time employed by the Edison Lamp Company, and a note addressed to him in their care, will bring him to your office any time you may wish to see him. I understand that he is out of town frequently, but he can be brought back whenever you want him." Very truly yours, A.O. Tate
