On Line, June 6th, 1933 Mr. A. L. Coey: Referring to Mr. Bracken's letter June 3rd, regarding a Mexican found dead in swimming hole on our property at Las Vegas: While it appears that this man was not drowned, at the same time in view of Mr. Bracken's apprehension of this situation, we should at once see what work is necessary to drain the swimming hole. As I recall the layout, the earth dam or dike should be sufficiently opened or removed so that it could not be filled up again by those who want to have a swimming hole there. It should not cost over $25.00 to tear the bank dike out, and have the job done so that it could not be readily built up again. F. H. KnickerBocker CC - Mr. W. R. Bracken:
