Walter J. K. Bracken letter to J. Ross Clark, December 5, 1903

 
LOS VEGAS RANCHO 60-A To Mr. J. Ross Clark V.P. Los Angeles Calif From LOS VEGAS, NEV., 5 Dec 1903 Dear Sir: Am leaving this morning with a load of apples and sweet potatoes for trip up along the line. Our apple crop was so large this year and space for taking care of them so limited, that I fear they will spoil early as they are piled too high in the bins. Am going to all the camp south of Caliente and try to [nestle?] a market for some. My brother will stay here during my absence and so I feel its safe to be away, otherwise could not leave as we are over run with hobos and it requires constant watching to keep them from stealing everything [here?] or burning us out. Walter comes down this way on a mining trip for some of the De La Mar Co., and I presuaded him to say over couple of weeks while I'm gone as I expect it to take that time for this trip. Yours truly, J.K.W. Bracken
