Abstract

[from Orange] Upton writes: I sail this afternoon. I do not want to leave, but my doctor and all my friends tell me I should. I hope to be back about July 10. ##I expect to be able to aid the Lamp Co. in selling the new Indicator, and in bringing the Milan Co. out of their trouble with lamps and reach a settlement with them. ##While I am away, Insull has taken the looking after the finances and answering letters of the Lamp Co. I have left Holzer in charge of the factory. In case of any trouble, I have told him to go to you. ##As this is the first time in the eight years I have been with you that I have given out, I feel that I can claim some indulgence. ##Howell is busy experimenting on the Municipal lamps. I have told Insull that I will gladly do all I can in Paris to bring about an agreement with the French Co. ##My address will be care of Baring Bros., London. Good Bye.
