March 22, 1911. Mr. R. E. Wells, General Manager. Dear Sir: Replying to your joint favor of the 9th. I return herewith, unapproved, form 30, Los Angeles Division No. 597, covering expenditure of $4435.58 for concrete pipe and erecting a house over the big springs at Las Vegas. You will have had copy of Mr. Bancroft's letter to re of the 19th in reply to mine of the 11th, copy of which I enclose. analysis of water, etc. should be followed out; and a form covering the pipe line only, omitting additional arguments can be advanced as to why the housing is necessary. But everyone seems to think that the sunshine does the water no harm, in fact is beneficial, and the Committee is not covered. Since writing my letter of the 11th to Mr. Bancroft I have learned that we have had some trouble with people from Las Vegas bathing in the springs. This I presume is not conducive to good drinking water, a m if there is no way to avoid it except by housing the springs perhaps it should be done. Very truly yours, ene CC- Mr. W. H. Bancroft.
