[X154A4FM], Letter from Uriah Hunt Painter to Edward Hibberd Johnson, December 20th, 1885

Abstract

Enclosed is original certificate for 24 shares subscription; I don't want it surrendered to the Co. in any way that waives my right to compel them to surrender the shares; I never authorized its sale; the co. had no right to sell it without notifying me; will compel them to give the shares back or give me other stock in place of it; don't want you to advance me money; tell me what you have advanced and I will refund it; does your letter mean the company won't pay me for services rendered at request of yourself and TAE in securing legislation to save your New Orleans money from total loss; I can't sue you to collect the money for services of that kind, but the refusal to pay is still dishonorable; I only want what is right and I'm entitled to my commission on the increase in the Government Printing Office; Clark didn't get the increase and only was an injury to it; "I do intend not to be run over with impunity."
