Dear Sir,

I was in Deshler on Friday last and report to find that a large sale of lots had been made there without any reservation worth naming for Depot grounds for our Company. We should have not less than three acres.

I called to see Mr. Deshler on Saturday, and told him that we must have sufficient ground for the "Y" track and Depot facilities. The "Y" track will cross lots 1, 2, 3 & 4. Mr. Deshler agrees with me that before title is give to these lots, that arrangements should be made to secure such as is absolute necessary for our purpose. Will you please give the matter immediate attention and advise me what can be done.

Yours respectfully
W.C. Quincy
President
