The monied men of our Co. want to know what you are doing & if you are going to get water to the town [2] & below. They say they are tired of such management and if you can't do the work they want to know it and at once.

George you told me you would be at Cody to commence work by the 1st of April. God only know where you are and if you will ever get to Cody and if you will get to work when you do get there. If water aint down to town early we are ruined.

George if you don't try to do something this dam ditch will drive me crazy. Why won't you for once get down to work & see that the men and or you work.

For Gods sake do something. I can't stand the company off with fairy tales any longer—

Yours

Cody
