Kendall M. Chambers letter to E. A. Byler, October 14, 1917

Berkeley, Calif., Oct, 14, 1917. Mr. E. A. Byler, Goldfield, Nevada. Dear John:- I had quite a visit with Tom Kendall in the City this morning - just bumped into him on the street - He tells me that he expects to get a long time lease on the Lone Star and start work in the north west end on the shale cropping. He expects Wheeler out from New York and thinks he may get him interested in other properties also. I asked him to go out and look into the Midnight-Pawnee property and if he could interest himself or anyone else in it to take it up with you or write me as he liked. He promised to look it over soon after his return so thought I would write you in case he spoke to you about it you would know what he was talking about. I did not talk about any specific proposition just put it to him to make one if he wanted to do any work. I had hoped to get up to Goldfield on my trip south but had to cover too much ground before I got up that way and found I could not make it any further than Beatty account of the service around the end of the week and Sunday and Monday so spent a couple of days in the Amargosa Valley and went back. Think I'll have to get up again before the first of the year and hope then to get through Goldfield. I did not have very good luck fishing over at Catalina but enjoyed the trips and saw a lot of the old timers in Arizona as usual. Yours truly, [signed] Kendall [M? Chambers?] I told Tom we had an electric hoist on the property but I am wondering if it is there yet for it must be a big temptation especially since the big raise in machinery prices. I guess it's worth more now than when it was purchased even figuring the high freight or express charges. What do you think of storing it intown somewhere where it will be safe from thieves?
