SAN PEDRO, LOS ANGELES AND SALT LAKE RAILROAD CO. LAS VEGAS, LINCOLN CO, NEVADA. 28 Dec. 1904 Mr. J. Ross Clark. V.P. Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Sir- Herewith enclose you original of wire sent you this date. Don't you think it would be advisable to notify me in some way when any parties are to be permitted on company ground? Almost daily there are parties wanting to get on our ground with every kind of scheme and somebody might drop in here with a very fearable looking scheme and tell me they had your permission to locate at certain place. This might be true or might not and after they had gotten on cause us considerable trouble to get them off. Yours truly, JKW Bracken
