This folder contains correspondence and other documents relating to the rights of EOMS and to Edison's ore milling patents in Great Britain and Continental Europe. The letters, written mostly to Edison, are primarily from Edward H. Beazley, secretary of EOMS; Herman E. Dick, a director of the Syndicate; and Richard N. Dyer, Edison's patent attorney. Included are a Syndicate prospectus, an agreement regarding its rights to develop Edison's ore milling patents, and legal opinions pertaining to the status of Edison's patent in Britain.
Approximately 50 percent of the documents have been selected. The documents not selected include a magnetic survey report on the British Isles by Samuel G. Burn, who conducted the survey on Edison's behalf.
