[D8541ZAF], Letter from C E Robinson to Samuel Insull, September 2nd, 1885

Editor's Notes

[Letterhead of International Bell Telephone Co. of NY; Principal Office for Russia] There is an adage "that one's goodness sometimes exceeds their beauty," but as I remember you as a good looking young man, I'll not make use of the adage in this case but merely say your kindness in promptly answering my letter was greatly appreciated. ##I am pleased to hear that you are satisfied with your change from the old to the new world. I am sorry that I ever left it for Europe and shall be pleased to return, which event I hope will not be far in the future. However, the reports of dull times in the States causes one to hesitate in leaving a comparatively good position, even though compelled to remain in Russia, but I think probably one St. Petersburg winter will be sufficient for me and NY will have still more attractions than ever before. ##Mr. Crawford left here for the States some 3 weeks ago and you will perhaps meet him soon. ##Mr. Rector is in Moscow, a letter addressed c/o Telephone Co. will reach him.
