[D8719ABH], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, September 17th, 1887

Editor's Notes

"I hve your favor of the 16th. inst. ## I don't at all agree with Mr. Edison in thinking 'it well not to recall to Mr. Shaw's recollection, the fact that this stock stands in his (Mr. Shaw's) name in the books of the Sunbury Co.' The stock is in Mr. Edison's hands endorsed by Shaw, and I am afraid the proxy may prove useless unless Shaw is fully advised as to this fact. I certainly think that Shaw should be told immediately; it cannot affect Mr. Edison's holding of the stock; it is within his power to put it into his own name at any moment he so desires, as the power of attorney on the back is not signed. I kept it in Shaw's name simply to give him greater influence in dealing with the Sunbury people; the transaction was so long ago that Shaw may have forgotten all this. I hope you will see Mr. Edison and arrange to write Mr. Shaw with relation to this matter.
