Abstract

"I saw Hastings a short time ago regarding Argentine Republic and he says that they have a capable man already there. I am fearful however that our interets are very much neglected in South America. I learn from outside sources that last summer the chief Engineer of Buenos Ayres was in New York, looking after a method of lighting in behalf of the City, and that he offered to the Water Gas Company something like $80000 for plant in that City. Hastings knew nothing of him and I think that no one connected with the Edison Company saw him. The agent there also evidently knew nothing about it, for there were no advices received from him. I wish you would get these papers together and bring them over when you come next time, and we will go over the matter." Yours truly, J. Hutchinson [Marginalia: "Ans Jan 30/88"]
