[D8736ACS], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, July 7th, 1887

Abstract

"I have this morning received from Randolph, two notes, each for about $3500.00, with the explanation that he was away on the 5th. inst. And that you were going to attend to anything that might come from me. My telegram particularly asked for one note of $5000.00, and if I had received two pieces of blank paper this morning instead of the two notes, I should be just as well off as I am now. ## I have spoken so many times of the necessity of my business being properly attend to, that unless some change is immediately made, I shall place my matters in the hands of Mr. Livor and write Mr. Edison that I cannot get decent business attention at 40 Wall St. ## The failure to carry our my instructions, compels me to go to New York to-day. For this failure there can be no possible excuse whatever, as my telegram was most explicite."
