[LB020257C], Letter from Samuel Insull to McCarty and Maitland, May 5th, 1885

Editor's Notes

"Referring to your favor of the 25th. ulto., I would state I have conferred with Mr. Dyer since my return from Detroit, and he informs me that it would be impossible to get an English patent on the broad priniciples of your cash carrier, but that very good claims could be obtained upon details of construction. I am at present in communication with my English friends in relation to the matter, and hope to be able to write you something definite very shortly. I cannot impress upon you too strongly the necessity of coming to some decision with relation to ?? contract immediately. Very valuable time is being lost, and, as I told you when I was in detroit, the only reason I am holding back from pushing your business is that I desire to have all preliminaries arranged before commencing operations. The gentleman I wish to interest with me in this matter is anxious for me to arrive at some decision, inasmuch as he has other very good things which he wishes to pus, unless he is going to join me in exploiting your cash carrier. Your were to forward me a specification of your apparatus, in order that I might get bids on the manufacture of same. This has not come to hand so far. You were also to let me have a number of compies of the pamphlet which you showed me. These I have not received. Trusting to hear from you by return, with contract executed by your Company, I remain,"
