Los Angeles - May 30th, 1943 Mr. Walter R. Bracken: 1-7334 (CC - Mr. Leo A. McNamee) Referring to your letter May 26th, file W 18-1-12, concerning proposed new lease in favor of W. T. Stewart on the Las Vegas Ranch. I approve the conditions recited, except that I do not feel the Land Co. is in position to make a definite commitment for two cubic feet of water per second. Rather than make such commit-ment, it is my opinion we should provide that Lessee shall be en-titled to use all of the effluent from the existing sewage disposal site so long as same shall be maintained by the City, and shall be allowed to use such waste water from the Railroad Company's water producing operations which may reach the property of the Land Co. Frank Strong
