[D8627Z], Letter from Henry M Livor to Samuel Insull, August 26th, 1886

Editor's Notes

[Letterhead of Shafting Dept. of Edison Machine Works] Have I ever said or intimated anything that could in any manner whatever reflect on Mr. Batchelor? ##I ask this because Batchelor accuses me of having acted toward him in an underhanded manner and I do not care to work[?] under any such imputations, not that I do not feel thoroughly independent of him, I simply desire that such an impression[?] concerning me should not permit in anybody's mind. ##I have of course talked freely with you in connection with the affairs of the Co., but I feel sure that nothing I have ever said or done could be in the slightest degree construed as being underhanded. Mr B did not mention your name at all in the matter, in fact he declined to give details and as TAE and yourself are about the only persons outside of Batchelor and Kruesi that I have ever discussed Machine Works affairs, I thought it might be a [-----] to get the expression of TAE and yourself in writing, more for my satisfaction than anything else.
