This folder contains correspondence by Josiah C. Reiff, a longtime Edison associate who was involved in protracted litigation (George Harrington, Josiah C. Reiff, and Thomas A. Edison v. Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Co. et al.) arising from Edison's telegraph work during the 1870s. Some of the letters concern Edison's involvement in the case. Also included is correspondence by John R. Schermerhorn and William E. Gilmore regarding the decision of Judge John R. Hazel in January 1906.
Approximately 30 percent of the documents have been selected. The unselected items consist of scattered court records, including the decision of Judge Hazel, along with numerous letters by Reiff that discuss the progress of the litigation but do not involve Edison directly.
