[D8334G], Letter from Charles E Rocap to Thomas Alva Edison, February 13th, 1883

Editor's Notes

"I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of 10th inst, and to say in answer thereto, that your desire shall be carried out in every respect. It has always been evident to me that the position I have occupied would sooner or later become a subordinate one. That havingnow occurred, it is merely a question of time when I shall have to leave your employ. So long as I have been permitted to work for your interests alone, I have always put forth every effort for success: but I cannot surrender my independence or become subservient to Mr Insull. The moment this is done my position becomes worthless, and there is no longer any inducement for one who has striven hard to promote his employer's interests, to continue doing so. I desire that the examination Mr Insull is about to make of the books, to be most thorough, and shall give him every assistance to that end." recommend select and make one doc w/ preceding D8334F dh 20dec02
