[D8805ADY], Letter from Edison Machine Works, Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, June 28th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Your letter of the 20th. Inst. Came to hand whilst I was away in the West. I am very much surprised that Mr. Edison does not discharge the Japanese now in his employ. He told me on Sunday that he would discharge him, provided I brought him the proof that Iwadare had gone back on us. I made the suggestion to Mr. Edison for his own benefit. It is of no advantage to us one way or the other whether he discharges him or not, and I have not the time to hunt around New York to get the proof. The fact that Frazar informs me that Iwadare has bought a Westinghouse Plant, and is going out to Japan in their interest, is to my mind quite sufficient. I am confident that Mr. Edison make a grievous mistake in not discharging the Japanese he has now working for him." TAE marginalia: "Tell Insull want Mr. Frazar to give me the proof but I can't discharge summarily a good man without good excuse."]
