The report begins:"As per conference with your Mr. Stephens on March 14, 1913, below you will find my report touching the patents of the Eastman Kodak Company, concerning which you are charged with infringement because ofyour manufacture of certain cameras. Mr. Davidson concurs in this report." on page two of the report: "It seems to me this claim cannot be sustained because I am confident the prior art will show time stopsfor shutters and also diaphragms of many different constructions to be old long prior to Brownell's filing date, June, 1996."Much included in re the workings of each part of the camera: lens, shutter, motor, time stop projecting to the outside of the camera, diaphragm with series of apertures, etc.Page 5: "Probably the view of the Eastman Kodak Company is that these cameras infringe because they both embody devices adapted to compensatefor lens differentiations, which although different from those of the patent, are included within it."Page 7: "Infringement is alleged concerning claim 8 by Buster Brown No. 2A and Ansco Cameras NOS. 1, 2, and 3."Page 9: "Buster Brown No. 2A clearly does not infringe because although it has the upward tilting movement of the door fastener, it has not the transverse movement and whatever may be said regarding the tiltingmovement, the transverse movement must positively be present because that is recited as an essential requisite in the claim."Page 19: "In order to save expense and trouble, I suggest the quickest way to treat the matter would be to send one of the No. 11 cameras to them and ask whether they have any claim against it and if so underwhat patent or patents concerning which they claim infringement. Otherwise I would have to make an expensive and involved search to ascertain allpatents belonging to or controlled by the Eastman Kodak Company and then examine each for infringement and this will take much time and occasionconsiderable expense."From page 1 to page 19 full of opinions on various parts of cameras and possible infringments.REPORT OF JUNE 9, 1913 Phillips Abbott to Ansco.TLS from Phillips Abbott to Ansco: "I have received the results of the seaches from my Washington associates touching the six patents for camera construction owned by the Eastman Kodak Company under whichit charges you with infringement."Includes carbon copies of letters to Church & Rich of Rochester NY who were representing Eastman Kodak Company.Dated June 9, 1913: ".there is no infringement by them when the claims are construed as I think they must be and as to other patents that they have, as I think, a clear defence on the basis of invalidity."Each patent examined has a signed report from Phillips Abbott included, mostly fewer than 10 pages. But examining each patent and claim of infringement closely.This is a thick volume with many signed and dated reports by Abbott. With copies of patent drawings and specifications.
