[D8736AAW], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, March 3rd, 1887

Abstract

We have used considerable of Mr. Edison's stuff up here and it ought to be placed to his credit on our books and on your books to our debit. There are two cylinder writing desks, one walnut case for drawings, one type-writer, two office chairs, three sets of cupboards, (these cupboards were originally made for the windows at 65 Fifth Avenue), one case with pigeon holes and one set of letter files. I think this is about all the office furniture that we have taken, although randolph may know of some other stuff. In addition to this, we have used the old stock of flexible cable of the Construction dept. We have also got here the engine and boiler from Menlo Park. With relation to the office furniture, you can get out a statement of what it originally cost. On the question of the engine and boiler, I will get Mr. Kruesi's opinion as what we ought to pay for this. If you will get out a list of the furniture, I will put the prices on it that we are prepared to pay the next time in New York. This same remark applies to the wire." Marginalia by Alfred Ord Tate: "Johnnie Make list of these items please"
