60-A LOS VEGAS, NEV. 18 June, 1903. Mr. Ross W. Smith [?] Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Sir! Yours 13 June 03 received but I'd rather [?] a cook. Yes indeed a good Chinaman will do and I rather think would be the very best for this place. Our lodgers can do their own chamber work. Negroes are not very satisfactory when out alone this way. They are apt to drink and be very independent when you are dependent on them. A Chinaman rarely ever disapoints you and doesn't quit unless you have some one in his place. But I hope the cook will be here before you [relive?] this.In reference to the immediate forwarding of checked invoices you misunderstand me. It is not that our rush of work delays this being checked after arrival here of the good but we are so short of men and teams I have
