[D8719AAY], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, June 11th, 1887

Editor's Notes

"I received to-day, an express package containing two flags. What I wanted when I asked you to get me the "Union Jack" was not an American flag but a British flag. What you have sent me is a regular American flag and also the flag of the Revenue Service of the United States. The first I will keep; the second will answer for a portion of a flag for Mr. Krussi. Please have the plain flag with the red bars sent up immediately and I can fix on the (so called) Revenue flag to complete the outfit. Then get for me a British "Union Jack" the same size as the American flas which I have here and which I refer to above. If you do not understand now exactly what I want, please write for further instructions." Marginalia: "6x9 -- Flag with Just Bars. ## 6x9 Flag British Ensign -- ## 6x"
