Abstract

"The following telegram was sent to you at Orange, but not knowing whether you would be there at the time of its arrival, a copy has been sent to you at The Lamp Factory, so that it will reach you first thing Monday morning at whichever place you may visit first. :-- ## 'I have got myself into somewhat of a hole with Chapman, the Note Broker. I offered him six thousand dollars worth of United paper and then went and sold it to someone else for fear he might not take it. I must deliver him six thousand dollars worth of this paper before three o'clock Monday. United Company only owe me three thousand dollars. Telephone Batchelor; get him to meet you at sixty five Fifth Avenue nine o'clock Monday. Ask him to help you to get an advance of three thousand dollars worth of paper in addition to what they owe us, from the United Company so as to make a total of six thousand dollars at least. Have Batchelor endorse as Vice President of the Machine Works; get other endorsements and deliver paper to Chapman before thee o'clock Monday'"
