[D8959ACT], Letter from Alfred Ord Tate to Samuel Insull, July 23rd, 1889

Editor's Notes

Do you know that the Seligmans themselves own the graphophone. ## Young Seligman told me they do, but it is important that we should know positively. ## If they have simply undertaken to represent a syndicate in an endeavor to carry through a negotiation they would abandon it as soon as the negotiation failed and would not be such an important commercial element if we move without the graphophone. ## I have assumed that they would oppose us but I am wondering now if we kept quiet for a while the relations of the Seligman connection to the Graphophone would undergo any change. It might if they are acting as agent. It won't if they represent themselves. ## Let me know if you can get any definite information on this point." [PS] "Young Seligman and Moriarty have gone to Paris. I have told Gouraud that Moriarty's representation of your negotiation in New York was untrue. That you had so cabled me and that what you did was to refer them to Gouraud which is the latter's present understanding of the situation.
