[D8719AAL], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, March 4th, 1887

Editor's Notes

I have you letters of yesterday's date and return you herewith checks #2,754 to #2,757, inclusive, duly signed. You mention that Mr. W. P. Edison requires the $500. for the month's expenses at Llewellyn Park. You have already given him several checks on account of expenses. Did Mr. Edison tell you to pay any additional money beyond the $500. per month? As if he did not, you ought to speak to Mr. W. P. Edison about it, and advise me. This matter wants to be looked after carefully, as last year it caused me some considerable trouble. I have not been advised as to whether the Western union Telegraph royalty has been collected and deposited. I spoke to Randolph about this on Monday morning. Will you please let me know about this. ## With relation to Illuminating stock, I am not inclined to sell to Bergmann with a view to enabling him to work the market and sell the stock at 95, prior to his buying it from me at 90. I have wired you this morning somewhat on the above lines. From what you say I imagine Mr. Coster knows that somebody is offering the stock at 95. This is Gbergmann's usual way. He got me once or twice on this, but I do not intend that he shall again. I am perfectly satisfied to do whatever Mr. Coster says. In fact, I desire to ge guided by him entirely in these matters."
