[LB035385], Letter from Samuel Flood Page to Thomas Alva Edison, December 17th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of 27th November, together with another from Major Eaton, dated December 5th.##I need hardly say that it will afford me very great pleasure to be the means of giving you any information that we have at our disposal with reference to the 'Feeder' patent. We are however only in the initial stage and I think we shall best meet your views by sending a copy of Major Eaton's letter to our Solicitors, Mess. Ashurst, Morris, Crisp & Co., and asking them to supply me with their views of our present position.##I will write by this mail to Major Eaton in the same sense as I am now writing to you.##I am very hopeful that we shall establish this patent and prove it to be of very considerable value.##As I had the pleasure of seeing Major Eaton several times while I was in New York and have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lewis several times recently in Paris, they do not need any personal introduction to obtain my good offices. In fact you know that I am always glad to do anything I can to promote your interests in this country.##Trusting that you are well and with best Christmas wishes to Mrs. Edison and yourself. I remain, Dr. Mr. Edison, Yours very truly, S. Flood Page.
