This 14-page pamphlet contains testimony given by George Harrington, Josiah C. Reiff, and Lucy F. Seyfert between September and December 1882 in a civil suit involving Edison and Seyfert. Mrs. Seyfert was the widow of William M. Seyfert, an investor in the Automatic Telegraph Co. She initiated the suit in November 1880 in order to obtain payment on a promissory note signed by Edison on December 9, 1874. Harrington, who at the time was president of the Automatic Telegraph Co., was the original recipient of the note. It was subsequently signed over to Seyfert as part of a business arrangement regarding Edison's automatic telegraph patents. A copy of the note is included in the printed record. The jury subsequently awarded Mrs. Seyfert a judgment of $5065.84 Courtesy of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
