[D8533C], Letter from Charles Berggren, Electric Tube Co to Samuel Insull, February 14th, 1885

Abstract

"We received a cable from the German Edison Co. of Berlin yesterday reading: 'We accept information, samples, etc. offered by Tube Co. [on] Jan. 29, paying $2500 for both systems together cablegrammed.'" I inferred from this that they made us a counter-proposition; we cabled back last night: "Each system costs $2500, see Tube Co.'s letter. Do you order both?" Please forward us the answer to our message to our address as soon as you receive it.
