Understand that Mr. Clark is ill but I wish to notify you that auction cannot take place Monday because your surveys were only made today of which fact I have three witnesses beside myself to prove and just look up the law. It is simply another error of whittemores but just as serious as the one on ice plant and another one which I have not showed up because there is not a dollar in it without bribery and that I will not resort to I have given my word of honor to J.S. Park not to make any kind of a public holler as in the past because in future I will want lumber rates for my timber but I am showing up whittemores mistakes. Pass it all up to your best attorneys at once or I may take action answer.J.L.McWilliams1022am
