At Yermo, November 27, 1930 353 Mr. J. P. Mack: Your letter November 18th., next attached: What charges did we make against the Potosi Mine, the Great Western Plaster Company and Shannahan Construction Company when they secured water from point in question? I believe we should make a nominal charge on a flat rental basis to the Mexican people that are living in the quarters adjacent to the Arden pipe line. What would be your recommendations on a flat rental basis providing, of course, they are not mixed up in the manufacturing of moonshine? E. E. Cunningham CC- Mr. W. R. Bracken
