E. E. Calvin letter to N. A. Williams, October 17, 1922

(Copy) On Line - October 17, 1922. (PERSONAL) Mr. N. A, Williams, Acting General Manager, LA&SL RR Co., Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Sir: Mr. Gray writes me today as follows: "Wont you please have a full and complete report made covering the purchase of one new Lincoln and one second-hand Packard automobiles, for the use of special agents on the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad. It is difficult for me to appreciate why anyone, for such a purpose, would purchase an expensive automobile like the Lincoln and no more expensive automobile to be run can be found than the Packard, as I know by years of experience. There may have been some good reason which I am not familiar with for the purchase of automobiles at all, but such purchase should certainly have been confined to a light machine of moderate cost. Please give me full information to enable reply tothe President's letter. Yours truly, (Signed) E E Calvin
