C 0 P Y Las Vegas, June 20th, 1935. Mr. Leonard L. Arnett, Mayor of Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada. Dear Sir: Further reference to my letter even date, which I delivered to you, regarding water consumption: On returning to the office, I find I overlooked advising you the amount of water shipped to Boulder City and outside points. We average two carloads twice a week to Boulder City, and one per week to other outside points, such as filling cisterns for section forces along the line, etc.. and these tank cars have a capacity of 12,000 gallons. On a daily basis, these outside shipments of water will average about 8,000 gallons per day, or two-tenths of one per cent of the amount delivered to the city. Yours very truly, /sgd/ WALTER R. BRACKEN, Vice-President.
