COPY STEVENS & HENDERSON Attys. Las Vegas, Nevada March 20, 1923 Walter R. Bracken, Esq., Agent Las Vegas Land & Water Co., Las Vegas, Nevada. Dear Sir: One of the most vital and pressing questions confronting the City of Las Vegas is the matter of an increase of water supply and the extension of the water mains to subdivisions which are very badly in need of water, (as some have none), therefore holding back the upbuilding of these subdivisions. Many are now complaining that they have not water enough for family use under the present water system in said subdivisions. The City Board would like to hear from the Las Vegas Land & Water Company, as to what steps it intends to take, if any, in regard to further supply of water. Trusting to hear from you in the matter, I am Respectfully yours, (signed) W.H.DENTNER Mayor Pro. Tem. of the City of Las Vegas.
