Mr. Sam Yount of GoodSprings informs me that you are the man who has charge of the old Stewart or Las Vegas Ranch. And I take liberty to ask if you are inneed of a foreman- I was up in that country and made a success of fruit growing as well as other farming.I was out to Wilsons on the Sandstone Ranch once.But I was foreman at Pahrump Ranch during the time the Calivada Colonization Company were booming that country. The C.C.Company proved to be a fraud organized only to sell land and swindle the public. But I found it to be a fine farming country for raisingfruit and gardenstuff of a superior qualityI have 30 years experience in fruit growing andI know of no place where finer pears are growing.Apples and other deciduous fruits were excelents.I planted the first Olive trees.
