Walter J. K. Bracken letter to J. Ross Clark, March 26, 1903

SAN PEDRO, LOS ANGELES & SALT LAKE RAILROAD CO. OFFICE OF AGENT 60-A J.K.W. BRACKEN, AGENT Salt Lake City, Utah, 26 March 1903. Mr. J. Ross Clark, V.P. San Pedro Los Angeles & salt Lake RR. Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Sir! I have your letter 19 Mar/03 in reference to the Vegas ranch matter and have taken two days to consider it. I am willing to go for the present and with your promise of something better when it presents in the future. Sundays and Thursdays are the only days one can leave here and make direct connection through. I will leave here Thursday, 2d Apr/03 unless you can allow me a few more days to straighten up some of my personal affairs. Will you wire me your wishes on receipt of this and also write me definite instruction for things there. I suppose a few days more would make no difference to Mr. McDermott unless he is very ill. In that case will go immediately. I have the Shay Cipher book which I will take with me and if necessary we can use on the [same?] key of five (5). Yours truly, J.K.W. Bracken
