Title

[LB021144], Letter from Samuel Insull to Ezra Torrance Gilliland, November 25th, 1885

Editor's Notes

I wrote again to London by last Saturday's mail about your new Transmitter. I offered to send sample instruments immediately on receipt of a cable from the gentleman {I} wrote to. His name is Mr. Dillwyn Parrish. He is the largest owner in the United Telephone Company of England, is one of the directors and {----} American. If we can sell through him, I do not think we shall have to pay him any commission for negotiating, as when he was here last he told me he was anxious to get hold of everything good in the way of Telephones for his company and that his large ownership in the Company would pay him for any trouble he might take. However, of course, he might alter his mind in this respect.
