[D8541S], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, July 2nd, 1885

Abstract

Your various communications came to hand. As I have not the time to write myself, and as there are a lot of snoopers around here, I cannot enter into the subject of them with that freedon as I would otherwise like to do. I understand the business you speak of now. Of course I am always willing to go into any such deal, but I cannot imagine that I am to get something for nothing, and would therefore like to hear from you as to what is expected of me. It is an absolute impossibility for me to leave NY now as TAE is away in Boston, Kruesi sailed for Europe this morning, Upton is already there, and Batchelor leaves NY in a day or two and will be absent some time. I wish the business about which you write me could be settled up by correspondence. If it can, please let me know, and if it is imperative that I should come up to see you I will try and go up one night and come back the next. ##The opportunity to talk to Mr. Johnson about the matter concerning which you wrote me has not yet occurred. As soon as it does, I will confer with him and let you know the results. [Added as postcript:] Mc. G.[?] sends his regards to the blooming blonde.
