[D8322ZDQ], Letter from Gardiner C Sims to Samuel Insull, November 24th, 1883

Editor's Notes

"Dear Sam sick again and at home. will be out Monday", Frank Armington called with order for engine in 10 days, "you shall have it" as well as Sunbury, "provided we do not have any slip up." Newburgh engine finished. Asks for an idea of future orders as business is full and "would refuse large Mill engines until we can enlarge again as I am now buying more tools". Shafts for central station engines are special order---require 60 days; have 2 on hand, so plan accordingly. "Edison is right about our regulating, and it does not follow, that becaues the speed is greater the regulator is to be made lighter". Moore going to Shamokin to investigate engine---can't afford to have bad one there. "I hope to see you off for home, and would like to go with you, but cannot. Believe me." PS, Moore to arrive Tues---please see him. [not clear where Insull is now]
