Abstract

"On Sunday I wrote you to the Normandie asking you to wire me today stating whether you had heard whether $1000 Sprague Co note had been discounted by the Eleventh Ward Bank. I also asked you to see Mr Vail and ask him to come up here tomorrow (Wednesday) and c[-]a[-----]e the tubes for Illuminating Co. I have no reply of any kind. I am very much surprised and your not answering me is a very serious matter to me. I want a payment from the Illuminating Co on Thursday. I cannot get it till Vail has approved my bill. I cannot get his approval until he has been here. When he will be here you should have advised me and you have failed to. I wired you today asking why you have not replied to me. I shall wire you again tonight (to the Normandie) asking you why you do not attend to the matter. If I do not hear from you by tomorrow at 9 a.m. I will take the matter in hand & communicate with Vail. The days delay will I know put me in a very serious position. It seems strange that I cannot rely on your attending to such matters with promptness. I have telegram today from Randolph but nothing from you ## P.S. Since writing the above I have a telegram from Randolph stating that you have gone to Newark so that I am at a greater loss than ever to know why you have failed to attend to the matter"
