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. They done well aslongas the trees got proper care- Orange trees can begrown on trifoliata stock could be hardened soas to raise Orange trees for show or Ornamentand many other hardy sime hardy trees
