[D8535ZBK], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Samuel Insull, August 5th, 1885

Abstract

Received your letter today, regarding the European Co. and TAE's approval of my actions here. I think I have received all of your cables, though I received one of them 8 days after it was sent. ##I find it impossible to keep up the terms granted the French Co. for fusion. I have agreed, subject to approval by the European Co. of NY, to a reduction of royalty from 22 centimes to 20 centimes. And also to give up one founder's shaer of the part held in NY for every two used by the French Co. in bringing in new capital or uniting interests. I shall reach NY on City of Rome a few days after you receive this and will explain the reasons for the change.
