[LM003104], Letter from Samuel Insull to Edward Hibberd Johnson, February 17th, 1883

Abstract

"My dear Ed:" had letter from London Co saying they'd heard Armington & Sims not satisfactory and we were going back to Porter-Allen. This is the 3rd or 4th such report; where do they hear these things? I just stopped an A&S engine that ran 7+days without stopping at heavy load. Edison, Clarke, & Eaton working up an Illuminating Co with every promise of success. Things good in Boston. Bergmann complaining of slack orders. Isolated business rather slack, too; lots of agents but few orders. Pearl St. running well although collections not coming in well (more than half amount of bills uncollected). Will send you copy of cashier's daily report, at TAE's suggestion.
