[D8839AAC], Letter from Samuel Insull to Thomas Alva Edison, January 6th, 1888

Abstract

Rcd yours of 5th re: Japan business. "Your letter puts an entirely different light on the matter to that which I gathered from your letter to Upton. I am fully in accord with you in all you say in relation to the business in question. I had no idea that Mr. Frazar was charging an extortionate profit. In fact Frazar is always going for me, and telling me that he cannot make money [illeg] our prices. From what you say I should rather imagine that Mr. Frazar is, to put it vulgarly 'playing us.'" Will see Frazar next week and insist he puts in a decent bid. ## Just balancing last year's books; when finished, I will go out to Orange and spend the night with you so as to give us ample time to go over matters.
