Title

[D8959ACD], Telegram from Alfred Ord Tate to Samuel Insull, July 15th, 1889

Editor's Notes

[POSSIBLY SELECTABLE] "Moriarty, representing Seligman, negotiating for three weeks with Gouraud. Tried first to buy his interest. He refused absolutely to consider any proportion except sale of both his and T.A. Edison’s. Seligman offered two hundred thousand dollars for these. Gouraud said he would refuse as many pounds. Seligman owns foreign Graphone. Seligman is trying to find Gouraud’s price, and told him Insull named six hundred thousand dollars as asking price for combined interests of Gouraud and T.A. Edison., Seligman threatens immediate litigation, saying best experts advise T.A. Edison patents weak and Tomilson has given same advise as inside information. Seligman states have perfected plans to prevent Gouraud bringing out any company in Europe. I have listened and said nothing. Expect further developments to-morrow."
