[D8719AAN1], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, March 14th, 1887

Editor's Notes

"Referring to the enclosed letters you will notice that Mr. eaton mentions the Ocean Co. You will find in the safe, a contract between the Edison Ore Milling Co. and William Bell & Co. The latter concern used to have an office on Broadway. ## They are obligated to pay the Ore Milling Co. certain royalities; will you please hunt the matter up and find out why they never made a payment, whether the contract is good for anything, inasmuch as they never made a payment, in fact, find out everything you can about the matter; I have an idea Mr. Eaton knows there is something coming to us, and that is why I have suggested you finding out. ## The letter from the Edison & Swan Co is returned to you siimply for the purpose of filing; I presume you have already written to london, stating that the correspondence in relation to patents, must lay in abeyance until Mr. Edison's return from the South. ## I enclose herewith letter which I have received from my friends in London on the subject of the European Telephone Co. papers; please go over to Mr. Stone's office in the Mills Building and look over the telephone papers there, as explained when I was in town last." Marginalia: "Bell & Co are the Ocean Co"
