Title

[D8848ABN], Letter from Edison Machine Works, Samuel Insull to Alfred Ord Tate, May 23rd, 1888

Editor's Notes

"Almost invariably when I am in New York I get inquiries as to the stability of the Phonograph Company, --I refer to the Manufacturing Company. I am told that the Phonograph people do not pay their accounts. Of course I invariably reply that this is simply a matter of neglect and the accounts ought to be paid, and that it is a blank, blank shame that they are not paid. I have had to do this because this failure to pay accounts affects our credit. I find that the only way to keep a good credit is to settle monthly in some form or other. If you people at Orange are going to abuse your credit you will cripple us. ### I wish you would write to me as to this matter as it is one that has bothered me lately quite considerably."
