A. M. Folger letter to Charles Adams, May 20, 1947

Las Vegas - May 20, 1947 W 12-2-2 Dear Charley: Just a note of appreciation for your kindness in sending us the list of lot purchases in 1905. It added much to the Chamber of Commerce celebration of the birth of Las Vegas. In looking through our files, I ran across a real antique, - - one of the original pamphlets advertising the sale of lots here May 15, 1905. Have had some photostats made, and am enclosing one for you. The "free ride" to Las Vegas is interesting, and also the liquor restrictions. Photostat of the original map filed is also enclosed. A. M. Folger (Personal) Mr. Charles Adams Los Angeles, California
