[LB034182], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Albert Blake Dick, November 22nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

I enclose herewith the following correspondence:- ### [List of nine correspondences follows] ### You will see from Major Eaton's letter, first referred to above, that your interpretation of the contract between you Company and Mr. Edison, is incorrect, and that the A.B. Dick Company has no right to manufacture mimeographs in the United States for export. ### In connection with all this correspondence and our various discussions of your rights abroad, I wish to say that Mr. Edison appreciates fully the difficulties under which you labor in the European market. The matter was not brought up for the purpose of saddling your business with a royalty to cause you further embarrassment, but for the reason that there is a principle involved which should certainly be recognized by your Company. Mr. Edison is quite willing to make a very liberal and reasonable arrangement with you, to enable you to carry on the business which you have already commenced, and will make you a proposition or receive one from you, as soon as you are prepared to recognize his rights in the premises. Kindly return all correspondence to me after perusal. Very truly yours, A.O. Tate
