On Line, October 14th, 1934. 085 Mr. E. E. Bennett: Herewith the correspondence referred to in Mr. Bracken's letter October 12th, copy to you, regarding some inquiry made of the Nevada Public Service Commission of the operations of the Las Vegas Land and Water Company. I do not see that there is any action that should be taken by us at this time. Am interested, however, in knowing what the situation might be if some organization of citizens or others should make an effort to acquire by condemnation or otherwise, the water system of the LVL&W. Please return enclosed file with your reply. F. H. Knickerbocker
