[D8352D], Letter from Samuel Insull to Paul D Dyer, June 11th, 1883

Editor's Notes

"I have your favor of the 8th inst., and I am very glad that you keep us so well advised of your movements. You have nothing to do with canvassing for consumers, and as I have said before you must not listen to what the local people have got to say about you or your business. Neither should you say anything about the probable price of the electric light. In all probability it will be the same cost as gas is, except we supply a better light for the same money. But this is for your information and if any one asks questions about it, the best way for you to do is simply to say that they must wait until the local company commences operations. Just work away as hard as you can, as the towns are piling up terribly and keep me pushed." xxx poss select dh 3feb03 xxx
