[X154A8BG], Letter from Uriah Hunt Painter to Edward Hibberd Johnson, March 30th, 1889



My Dear Mr. Johnson:-- Yours of 3, 29, endorsed upon Mr. Bergman's letter to hand.##I am not in favor of the organization of a stock Co. at the present time, because I do not belive it is in the interest of Mr. Bergman or of you or I to have it done at this time.##I told Mr. Bergman so when I was in New York in February and subsequently wrote to him to the same effect, since which I have heard nothing of it, and have no idea what the paper is that he had sent you.##The fact is that he got out of humor over the letter I wrote to Reiff, which your cleark kindly sent to him, and called upon me for an explanation, and as the letter was not addressed to him, nor to any one who had a right to show it to him, he could not properly be congnizant of its contents, and I so told him and informed him that I had neither apology or explanation to make for it.##He has not informed me that he wanted me to come to New York to organize a Company as he knew that I did not think it was the time yet to do it, and that is the only question about which there is an opportunity for discussion on the physical details of the business he has absolute authority and funds to work out them.##I have heard nothing from him for a long whitle, and had nothing outside to call to N.Y. at present.
