[D8416AQS], Letter from Samuel Insull to Ohio Edison Electric Installation Co, Archibald B Stuart, February 28th, 1884

Editor's Notes

Rcd yours of 26 and glad to hear everyone's so enthusiastic. Surpised to learn of company's disappointment with incompleteness of relatively minor items at station. [Regarding Tiffin] Goes through a dozen or so items about equipment and cahrges. Think you're in error regarding lamp breakage. Only 3 have broken in the short-circuiting manner you complain of. Lamp Factory records show we're making better lamps than we ever have, and can prove this. Regarding supplies, we're obligated to give you only 30 days' worth. Will fix up all this stuff, but you have to understand that some little things get overlooked. Tiffin company owes $5,900, far greater than amounts in dispute so please get them to send $5,000 at least. Regarding local creditos, have paid them all promptly (even those who drew on us at sight, "a procedure which we have the greatest possible objection to." We've paid promptly, so they should pay us promptly.
