[LB018191], Letter from Samuel Insull to Bergmann & Co, July 30th, 1884

Editor's Notes

In a letter addressed by Mr W. N. Stewart to Major Eaton the following occurs:-##"We have many times, both by letter and in person, protested against the way Bergmann packs goods sent us. I have to-day asked Mr. Waters to make a claim against the Co. for $100. damages on a Wheatstone bridge and Thomson galvanometer sent here in such condition as to be useless. I assure you that if a similar thing occurs again that I shall make every purchase possible of other firms."##You will notice that this is a very serious matter indeed, and inasmuch as we are likely to be shipping a very large amount of material to South American Ports, it is one to which you should give your immediate and close attention.##While it seems quite possible to ship lamps and dynamos, without any serious damage from handling during transit, the complaint is frequently made as to the state of your material when it arrives at the point of destination. There must be something very wrong about your packing department.
