[D8835ADI], Letter from Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, June 28th, 1888

Editor's Notes

"I have this morning, the 28th of June, received our account for Experimental work for the month of April. ### I am sorry to have again to call your attention to the fact that accounts of this character should, and certainly can be rendered, at a much earlier date than Sixty days after the work is closed. I am entirely powerless to control, in any way, our experimental expenditures, so long as so much delay occurs in rendering bills. It is scarcely any use in writing just before the first of July to Mr. Edison, about expenses incurred during the month of April. I certainly think that far greater promptness should be exercised in sending statements to us. There is not a concern in this country who poses as having their business conducted on anything like a systematic basis, who would dare to make excuses for rendering accounts at such a late day." Yours very truly, Sam Insull
