[D8943AAR], Letter from Samuel Insull to Thomas Alva Edison, November 22nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

There is a great deal of business which comes to this Company from territory outside of their control, as originally contemplated by the contracts made between you and the Edison Electric Light Co. I refer to shipments to Japan, Sandwich Islands, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and other outlying countries. You will remember that these countries and a number of others are neither owned by this Company nor by any of the european or Australasian Companies, operating under contract with you. It is desirable that we should fill all orders of this kind coming to us for apparatus for electric purposes. I would suggest to you the advisability of naming to us a royalty on shop prices which we can pass to your credit without any further communication with you. All these matter will come through my hands and I will myself be careful to see that no plants are shipped into territories covered by existing contracts of yours
