Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


July, 16 1891.
Phillip S. Dyer, Esq.,
Rue Day 432 Antwerp, Belgium.
Dear Sir:-
I have your letter of 4th instant addressed to Mr. Edison, in regard to the liquidation of the Gen’l. Zine Recovery and Lighting Co., Limited. As soon as Mr. Henderson is in a position to discuss terms, we will be very glad to be advised of the arrangement which he would be willing to make.
Mr. Edison, as you know, is not at all favorably impressed with storage batteries, and I do not know that it will be possible to interest him in this particular instance. Your Antwerp office sent us a translation of a letter from Dr. De Lalande, asking Mr. Edison to take up his Accumulator for the United States. Mr. Edison is at present away from home, but I am obtaining full information upon the subject, which will enable me to place the matter intelligently before him upon his return. Personally I am very anxious to get control of a good secondary battery, as I believe it would assist the development of our primary battery business in the same way that the alternating and arc light systems assist the regular Edison business. As soon as I am able to write you to the point, I will do so. Yours very truly,
A.O. Tate
