been made in the first reissue patent for
tie film, which had to be corrected by again
reissuing it.  It was for this reason that
the suit on the first reissue of the tit
patlet was discontinued. The procuring of
tI second reissue necessitated delay, and
it was therefore decided to proceed iode-
piiiently witi the suit oin the camera iat-
1nt. The camera patent, having beon sus-
tiiiied by the Court of Appeals, carries
witi it a very strong presumption in favor
of the Patent ott the film. Mr Kleine ap-
pears to believe that I have doubts cots-
cining this film  patent, but inl this he is
imistaken, and the suits against hit are to
lie pretssed sith every possible vigor.  The
are always short delays in the starting of
litigations of this sort, but whe  a suit is
Oncet at issue it can be spesdily tertminatd.
Ithis is siiat I propose to do.
