[X154A8AG], Letter from Samuel Insull to Uriah Hunt Painter, January 22nd, 1889

Editor's Notes

I enclose you herewith a letter I received this morning on the subject of duty on Mica. If it is not too late, and you can do anything towards preventing the duty being placed on Mica, I shall esteem it a great favor. In the Electrical business a great deal of Mica is used, and that best adapted for the purpose comes from Canada. To put a duty on this simply means to increase the cost without any real advantage to American producers.##Your letter with relation to the Tomlinson-gilliland matter came to hand whilst I was in Schenectady. The interview you refer to which the "Herald" published never took place so far as I can learn. The state of the matter is the same as the last time I talked to you. We have no idea whatever of letting up on Tomlinson and Gilliland.##Please let me know when you are coming to New York and I will explain the matter fully to you.
