[D8104ZBK], Letter from Samuel Insull to George Edward Gouraud, June 3rd, 1881

Item

Abstract

Typed. Ack's receipt of 21 May contact (Gouraud to Edison cc., apparently). Discusses issues of English telephone patents and litigation. Discusses Oriental Company and that TAE considers Le Gendre contact null and void as they have done nothing to push Telephone matters as stipulated in the contract, and that TAE and himself have been paying attention to matters in that regard. Discusses issues of stock issuance and company formation for Electric Light Company in England, preparation of plant, and even mentions upcoming Exhibition in London. Also discusses TAE's emphasis on the Electic Congress in Paris and the composition of the exhibit planned. NOTE that Insull also promises regular (weekly) progress reports--I will refer back to this letter whenever I see one of this format.
