LETTER ON FLOODED ROADS - September 8, 1924
Hayward Indian School
September 8, 1924
TO: The Commission of Indian Affairs,
Receipt is acknowledged of the Office Letter of September 4, 1924, and in reply thereto I have the honor to advise that I am taking up with the Town Board of Couderay and the Power Company the matter of construction the road referred to.
It is my intention to have articles of agreement with the town board regarding the specifications for and the location of the road contemplated. Also I shall procure from the Power Company a formal agreement regarding the deposit of $3,000.00 in connection with the proposition.
From the Office letter of August 6th, it would appear that the Power Company has agreed to build the road, whereas they had only purposed to furnish $25,000.00 to the Town of Couderay for this purpose, which amount was designated by the town board as being sufficient to complete this road. To avoid any further misunderstandings, in this matter, I think it advisable to state here that the Power Company is very adverse to being an active party in the construction of the road. Mention of this is made only in explanation of my intention of drawing articles of agreement, with the Town Board of Couderay. The primary object sought is to have the road built.
I trust that this action on my part will be met with the approval of the Office.
James P. Ryder
