[D8736ADP], Letter from Samuel Insull to John F Randolph, August 28th, 1887

Editor's Notes

"Yesterday afternoon I left a note at Mr. Chapman's office stating that I would have $10,000. or $12,000. worth of United Co's. paper on Monday or Tuesday. I have instructed Mr. Chapman to let you know whether he can dispose of it. $5,223.03 of this paper I have to-day sent to Mr. Tate to the Lamp Co., with a request to endorse it for the Lamp Co. and get the balance of the paper, that is, get as much as you possibly can. They ought to give you about $7,000. over and above the bills which will clear off the advance of $6,000. which they made to me some time back. You will remember that Mr. Batchelor is now the Treasurer of the United Co., so you will have to get his counter-signature as such; get Bergmann & Co's. endorsement and Tate's endorsement and Tate's endorsement for the Lamp Co. Do not let Mr. Batchelor endorse for the Machine Works, but keep the paper until I reach the office on Tuesday morning."
