May 16, 1892.
Major S.B. Eaton,
Edison Building, Broad St.,
New York City.
Dear Sir:-
I enclose herewith copy of a letter from the Secretary of the Edison United Phonograph Co., together with two duplicate assignments of phonograph patents for Cape Colony, which they request Mr. Edison to execute. Will you please advise me at your early convenience if these assignments are in proper form for acquisition.
In regard to their request that the assignments which you are holding pending the delivery of certain return licenses be delivered to them on the promise of the President of the Company that the said licenses shall be forthcoming at some future date, is it a fact that but three of the assignments in our hands, namely, Germany, Austria and Italy, require return licenses, and that the others can be delivered irrespective of licenses. If [illegible] Colony Assignments needs a recreation as to dolls, toys, toy figures and clocks, could not be assignments for Germany, Austria and Italy to [illegible] and the avoid of delay referred to in Mr. Morrison’s communication. Should you be dictated by your judgment to advise Mr. Edison to deliver these assignments to receive in return to a letter from the President of the E.U.P. Co., containing a promise to deliver the licenses, I will suggest that you prepare a letter for the E.U.P. Co’s President to sign.
Upon hearing from you on the above points I will communicate immediately with Mr. Edison.
Yours truly,
A.O. Tate
Private Secretary.
