[X154A7FH], Letter from Samuel Insull to Uriah Hunt Painter, December 21st, 1888

Abstract

"I have your letter of the 12th. I was suddenly called out of New York and ommitted to write you. ## Mr. Lippincott owes Mr. Edison under the deal for the sale of the Phonograph $152,500. I think if you can conveniently arrange to make an extension you will not only be helping Mr. Lippincott, but you will be helping Mr. Edison. The two interests are now so thoroughly bound up that any trouble to the North American Phonograph Company would of necessity cause Mr. Edison trouble, as it would affect, if not his own payments, certainly the investments of himself and friends in the Phonograph works."
