[D8835ACX], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, May 23rd, 1888

Abstract

"I have your letter about Mr. Charles Francis Stone. I cannot afford to issue any more Notes just now. I have got nearly Three hundred thousand dollars worth of paper to meet within the next three or four months. My business is very dull, and how I am going to stand this rapid liquidation is more than I know just at the moment. It would therefore be folly for me to issue any more paper due during that period. ### If you like to call on Mr. Stone and arrange with him to take six month paper, with interest added, dated the first, second, third, and fourth of June, and notify me, I will sned the Notes to you on the dates mentioned. I would not write to him offering this settlement. The best thing you can do is to see him."
