[D8541ZAN], Letter from Samuel Insull, Sr. to Samuel Insull, November 17th, 1885

Editor's Notes

Received yours of the 2nd yesterday [see Doc D8541ZAJ]. It was insufficiently stamped and the Post Office charged 10 cents[?]. A previous letter was also overweight for which I was charged. Please see to this. ##I am glad your Cash Carrier system is working successfully. ##I cannot give you any practical ideas about it at present. The probable [-----] must be before me to enable me to do this. Nevertheless, I do not see any difficulty in starting an Agency or forming a Co. if you secure control of the English Patents. ##The Bon Marche at Bruxton[?] has a Cash carrying system. It may be Lamson. I hope to see whether it is and how it is working sometime this week. I will also make inquiries whether the same system is adopted at Birmingham, Manchester, and Liverpool. ##There will be no difficulty in securing Agents. In fact, I am just now appointing Agents in connection with the Small Farm Co. operations, which the chairman Lord Thurlow said today were most satisfactory. ##If, as you intimate, you secure the control of the patents in England, you and your partner will be able to fix [-----] either for a Company to be formed or an Agency appoitned and then you can advise me accordingly.
