[D8850AAV], Letter from Samuel Insull to Thomas Alva Edison, February 29th, 1888

Abstract

"I enclose you copy of a letter which I received from the illustrious Col. Gouraud. I do not believe in making any such deal as that gentleman suggests; he is simply coming back to his old plan of trying to control your business abroad. To my mind he is more than ever anxious to put on his Note Heads the words 'Representative and Attorney in Europe for Mr. Thomas A. Edison.' I have not replied to Gouraud, and in fact before doing so desire to talk the matter over with you. I feel annoyed that Dyer should enter into any negotiations with Gouraud on a subject of this kind. Dyer cannot of course have any idea as to what we here may think of such a deal, and Dyer's approval of it must necessarily compromise us inasmuch as he represents the Edison shops in Europe." Very truly yours, Sam Insull
