[D8719AAI1], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, March 2nd, 1887

Editor's Notes

Mr. Upton informs me that the minute book was sent from Newark to 40 Wall Street just after the annual meeting of the Lamp Co. This is the book that I am very anxious to get hold of right away. Will you please have it looked up and send it here at the earliest possible moment. I want at the same time the letters signed by the various Stockholders of the Company authorizing the postponement of the annual meeting. At the same time you send up this minute book, please enclose two large and to small photographs of Mr. Edison's father. Have you sent a copy of each of these to Mr. Johnson's house and Mr. Batchelor's house. If not, you should do so immediately. I must say that I cannot understand why my requests in this connection were not complied with long ago. ## Have you seen the Germania Bank people as I requested last night?. Have you seen Mr. Coster and Mr. Bergmann about Illuminating Stock?. Please do not forget to advise me by wire on Friday whether the Eleventh Ward discounsts the $3,700. note I also want to know at the earliest possible moment whether the Germania discounted the Boston note on Mr. Edison's account." Marginalia: "Mch 3/87"
