Las Vegas - April 1, 1942 Mr. Leo A. McNamee, General Attorney, Las Vegas, Nevada. Dear Sir: Referring to our conference last week, with regard to delivery of 4 miner's inches of water to the Stewart burial plot. At that time we had an informal conference with Mina and Tiza Stewart and informed them of our plan to deliver water to the burial plot through a pipeline instead of the open ditch, as has been done in past years. We now have this service line to the burial plot in place and propose to install a small weir to indicate that the required amount of water is being regularly delivered. We tapped off the 8" main at a point near the southwest corner of the burial plot and carried the line about 150 ft. inside the plot to a point where delivery of water could be effected in the same ditch. Will you kindly advise whether, in your opinion, it is necessary for us to secure an easement to cover this service line and also whether or not you consider this arrangement satisfactory. Yours very truly, WALTER R. BRACKEN Vice President
