W.H. Comstock telegram to C. P. Smith, July 11, 1922
TELEGRAM Caliente, July 11, 1922. C. P. Smith, Los Angeles. C-28. Messrs. McNamee and Carey also approve so handling and will instruct Halsted accordingly, sending Pettit to Carson City with papers but withholding filing until instructed. Arrived here on No. 4 with car 22 Mexicans and got them in grounds without any trouble. Few minutes later sheriff and Mexican striker appeared and asked to talk with men which of course I consented to. Mexicans came right through and said they understood conditions when they were hired, they wanted to go to work and the sheriff after asking if they had any guns, to which they all replied in negative, left. I told sheriff we would not permit Mexican striker to enter shop grounds again and instructed all guards that sheriff was to enter at any time. Strikers were assembled at gateway and talked with sheriff after we left grounds but do not look for any trouble. Orig. EEC, Salt Lake and Omaha, copy CPS. C-679. W. H. Comstock.
