J. G. Scrugham letter to F. R. McNamee, March 9, 1923

STATE OF NEVADA EXECUTIVE CHAMBER CARSON CITY March 9, 1923. Mr. F.R. McNamee, Attorney, LA&SLRR Co., Pacific Electric Bldg., Los Angeles, Cal. Dear Sir: This will acknowledge receipt of your letter regarding pending claims of the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad company against the State of Nevada. The legislature has passed and I have approved the relief bill for $1361.39, which I understood was a settlement in full of the claims, except for the Lincoln automobile. This item was disapproved by the Board of Examiners on the ground that it was not a necessary or authorized expense. This Lincoln car is held awaiting your orders as to its disposition. I take exception to your statement that a Packard, or any other car, was purchased for the use of Governor Boyle and Inspector Renear. The facts of the case are that such cars were purchased, for use in the protection of the property of the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad. Permit me to again call your attention to the fact that this protection of the railroad property involved the state in a very heavy and burdensome expense which has been borne without question when the expenditures were authorized by the State Board of Examiners. I am of the opinion that the remaining questionable claims should be remitted by the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad Company in view of the extraordinary and costly services already rendered by the state in the protection of the railroad property. Yours truly, J. G. SCRUGHAM Governor
