[LB016455], Letter from Samuel Insull to Phillips B Shaw, May 24th, 1883

Editor's Notes

Have just seen your letter of 23rd inst. to Eaton; my only comment is "bully for you." Will it be necessary for me to go to Danville to attend the meeting there on Tuesday night in Edison's interests? If you say so I will be on hand in which case do not forget to provide the widow.##I have today sent revised plan to our Supt. Mr Rich at Sunbury. We propose putting in two (2) Twenty five horse power boilers, but still adhere to the intention of only putting one engine, which however leave so much margin that there need not be the slightest danger of a break down. Please try and arrange for us to handle the whole of this business ourselves as everyday we are getting in better condition to do it well and quickly which is of the greatest importance to all of us.
