[X154A7EO], Letter from Sigmund Bergmann to Thomas Alva Edison, September 26th, 1888



[This is misdated - it is a copy of D8832AAH 880926] I have yours of the 25th, concerning the question of Mr. Insull's representing the manufacturing interests when Mr. McClement makes an examination of our books, and am a bit surprised at hearing from this matter again, as I tol Mr. Insull pertty distinctly that we are perfectly competent to protect Bergmann & Cos interests (including yours) without his ssistance. As you well know, you and I are not of the same mind regarding Mr. Insull's abilities, and my opinion, I wish to state also, is not grounded by an means on his persistent attempts to antagonize, if not this concern, at least myself.##Of course, if you have any fear that your own interests in this concern will not be as well looked after as those of other stockholders, and make the request on the ground that Mr. Insull is to look after your personal interests, I can interpose no objectiopns. But as far as the matter of accountancy is concerned, our books are in perfect shape and ready for inspection, and the showing we shall make, and which our bookkeepers will not have the slightest trouble in making clear, is as follows, going back to the time from the incorporation of this Company to the time of the last taking of inventory on July 1st, 1888.
