[D8719ABO], Letter from Samuel Insull to John F Randolph, November 3rd, 1887

Editor's Notes

Referring to my telegram elsewhere confirmed, I find that I shall have to put upwards of $6,000.00 worth of United Co. paper in the Germania Bank to-day. It occurred to me that if you put in your note on Mr. Edison's account and I put in mine on the Machine Works' account, that it might jeopardize the chances of either of them being discounted. What I think you have better do is to send your Note to the Germania on Monday, so as to try and get it discounted on Tuesday. If Mr. Edison has any amount of money, ask him to deposit say two or three thousand dollars on his account at the Germania for a few days; it would materially assist your getting the discount. You might also ask Mr. Edison whether he wants me to discount some Light Co. paper for him. If so, send me a note to the Normandie, where I shall be Saturday night or Sunday."
