Bliss, general manager of Edison's Electrical Pen & Duplicating Press Co., and Frederic Ireland, manager of the Electric Writing Co., which marketed the invention in Great Britain. Also included is an agreement between Edison, Charles Batchelor, and James Adams (parties of the first part) and Bliss and Charles E.
