Title

[D8361ZDZ], Letter from Frank H McCormick to Samuel Insull, December 8th, 1883

Editor's Notes

In reply to yours of 5th asking about experience of Sunbury station: running 3 mos, have 330 lights & contracts for 100 more. Lighting only public buildings like hotels, stores, RR stations, etc; will expand to private dwellings. Earning 4% on capital; expect 20% after expansion. Customers pleased; no lights taken out despite strong Gas opposition.
