J. Ross Clark letter to Walter J. K. Bracken, October 31, 1903

File 60-a COPY Oct. 31, 1903. Dr. J.K.W. Bracken, Los Vegas, Nevada. Dear Sir: I have your favor of the 26th instant and note that you are sending me a sample box of apples. I note that you have about twelve tons of these already picked and expect to have about that many more. The apples arrived a day or two ago, and I find them to be very nice, indeed. I hardly think it would be policy to ship these apples to Los Angeles for the market, as the freight rates are tremendously high from Ivanpah to Los Angeles. I think you ought to be able to find a market for them among the contractors, ranchers and engineer parties near the ranch. I also note that you have sent three boxes of these to Salt Lake to Mr. Wells, Mr. Whittemore, etc. I received the sample of the fall apples sent to me by mail, and I was under the impression I acknowledged receipt of them. I found them to be a very choice article. Very truly yours, (Signed) J. ROSS CLARK
