[D8805ADM], Letter from Samuel Insull to Thomas Alva Edison, June 12th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I went with Turner this morning to see a pair of Horses, which I think would suit you for style and size. We were so favorably impressed by them that we bought them. They are not the color you asked me to get for you. They are a very pretty dapple-grey, perfectly matched, not so large and heavy as you present horses, and after we have had them here a week or two, and groomed them up well, they will have a very presentable appearance. If the color will suit you I will send them down to you and take your present pair of horses in their place. It will not involve any expenditure on your part, and if you do not like the pair I send you, you can send them back again, as I shall be very glad to take them myself at the price that I have paid for them, namely $475.00. I am confient that I could sell them for a thousand dollars before I get through. Please let me hear from you about this.
