[D8930AAD], Letter from Samuel Insull to Thomas Alva Edison, January 18th, 1889

Editor's Notes

I received your telephone message yesterday before I left Dey Street, telling me to see about your wire order for the Phonograph Works. I find that we have shipped fifty per cent more of #18 wire than was actually called for by the Phonograph Works. The delay has been with the .030. Between 200 and 225 lbs. of this goes forward today. Another 200 lbs. will go Monday##I understand your requirements are about about 50lbs. per day, [of this size] and I have given instructions that that amount of wire must be got of hereafter. If you want more than 50 lbs. per day, please give instructions that Kruesi be advised of this immediately, and he will see that whatever you require is shipped.##I wire you the substance of the above this afternoon.P.S. In replying to this be sure and have the reply addressed to Mr. Kruesi, as I shall be back in New York again by the a reply could reach here. [Saturday? Am]
