[D8940ABA], Letter from W A Willard to Charles Edward Chinnock, April 1st, 1889

Editor's Notes

[This is an enclosure from D8940AAW] Chinnock to Tate, 890405] Mr. Chinnock. In regard to the Joseph Stern plant, I would say this plant is one that was secured by Mr. Hubbell after it had been virtually promised to Mr. MacLean. Mr. Stern had in his possession at the time an estimate from Mr. MacLean and in all probability Mr. Hubbell was aware of it and he secured the order by cutting. Since the order was seccured and goods ordered there has been some influence at work with Mr. Cochrane to render him very much dissatisfied with the treatment he had received from this Company. While I do not wish to accuse Mr. Hubbell of anything of that nature, the fact that Mr. Stern has addressed a letter to Mr. Edison is to my mind prima facie evvidence that Mr. Hubbell has been instrumental, to a certain extent, in causing the dissatisfaction on the part of Mr. Stern. I would stat ethat Mr. Stern's complaint is not entirely unfounded, inasmuch as the order for shafting was given to the Edison Machine Works and a delay of three weeks was caused thereby. The belts were ordered by Mr. Klein and were not of the manufacture that c--- act called for. However, as I now understand it, everything is satisfactory and plant is now running. W.A. Willard
