Valona Jan 25th 05 Mr. John Muir Martinez Calif Dear Sir Mr. Hanlon continues to use your property & in front of it on the street for a dumping place for his lumber and wagons. I notified him that is was Mrs. MuirΓÇÖs wish for him to move it away. That was about one year ago. I asked him again last week when he was going to move it & he said he had as much right there as anyone, and if you wanted to move it to do so. I would state that it seems to one the object was to make Port St 110ft wide so that Mr Hanlon could have use of it for himself. Mr John P. SilverΓÇÖs & M. F Silva were here at my place last Sunday & wanted to rent the Hall for Lodge purposes provided

the Hall was fixed so that Lodges could hold their meetings & when they have a chance they want it for all night. I am of the opinion that if it was fixes up, there would be a good revenue derived, but as it now stands there is no accommodation of no water or toilets. Will you have the hall fixed? Kindly tell me know Respectfully yours Francis George


Valona [Calif.]
