May 28, 1912.Dear Sir:As you art doubtless already advised, on last Thursday City Attorney Long and Mr. John R. Freeman held a conference at my office with the Board of Engineers on the Hetch-Hetchy matter, at which the request of the city of San Francisco for a further extension of time in which to present its evidence was carefully considered, I was quite sorry to hear of Mr. Manson's incapacity and appreciate the difficulty of filling his place so as to enable the City to present its case within the time fixed.As a result of our conference it was agreed that the City should be given until June 30, 1912, to file the matters it wishes to present with regard to the Modesto and Turlock Irrigation Districts and also the Sacramento, San Joaquin, and McCloud sources of supply.On July 15th the city is to file its comprehensive plans (and explanations thereof) as to the proposed use and development of the Hetch Hetchy and Lake Eleanor valleys and water sheds, including the proposed sanitary restrictions; and all supporting evidences as to the feasibility of these restrictions. It will also file a general outline of06319
