[LB035095], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Benjamin F Stevens, December 12th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I confirm elsewhere a telegram sent you this morning. I have a full set of the patents referred to, including the two Japanese patents. All the claims contained in these papers have been embodied in patents and applications abroad, all of which can be verified at the proper time. Meanwhile, I will arrange to obtain a list of these patents which I have not got at present. Mr. Edison's later patents in Europe were taken out by Col. Gouraud, who is at present in America. I fear that during his absence from London, it will be difficult to obtain a correct record, but I am writing to his London office for such information on the subject as it is possible to get. I will give Mr. Yeomans a letter to the Manager of Col. Gouraud's office in London, which may have the effect of facilitating matters. I enclose copy of a letter which has been forwarded to Mr. Yeomans and which I think embodies your ideas." Yours very truly, AO Tate
