[D8541ZAH], Letter from George A Mason to Samuel Insull, September 10th, 1885

Editor's Notes

[Letterhead of American Telephone Co., Limited; difficult to read] I want to make a rather confidential inquiry. Frank McLaughlin was here about some mining business. From reports which I had, I thought he was all ok. I gave him all the papers in relation to a [-----] which had been placed in my hands. He was to see if and see the parties in [America?]. Just before he left, he had 30 pounds from which he promised to pay into my bank in NY. The money has not been paid in and he has not seen the people about the river[?]. ##Can you tell me where he is or what he is doing? ##Please do not say anything about this as I don't want to say anything to injure Frank, but this has caused me a lot of trouble as the mining matter came to us through Mr. Cole, President of the Chicago Stock Exchange and I wrote to him that M[cLaughlin]] would be there by Aug. 13 and to hold the matter open. Mr. Mc[Laughlin] has not yet shown himself and Cole goes for me. ##Your brother is getting on nicely. [Marg: There appear to be computations at the bottom on the second side of the letter, but they may have come through from a different sheet.]
