[D8719ABF], Letter from Samuel Insull to John F Randolph, September 3rd, 1887

Editor's Notes

I have your favor of the 2nd. Inst. With relation to the amount of money you had drawn from the Germania bank on Mr. Edison's account. Your telegram of yesterday stated that Mr. Tate had paid the money out. It would appear from your letter that you had drawn the Cheques and asked Mr. Tate to get them signed, and that you are therefore responsible. You certainly have been with me long enough to know that the first thing to be done is to meet notes. You do not seem to have bothered your head anything about whether the money had been deposited by me to meet the note or not. The next time you have a note due and have the money in Mr. Edison's account, you must hold on to it until you are sure that the note is provided for. I wrote quite a sharp note to Mr. Tate yesterday [D8719ABE] in relation to this matter, blaming him severly for having paid out the $370.00; it would seem that you were the one I should have gone for sharply. I should be in New York Tuesday morning."
