W. T. Reid
May 21, '94
Dear Mr. Muir,
How deep are you willing to go into the Tahoe lots? I rather hope that those of us who are now in it may take up all the lots & then sell them only to persons whom we all wish very much to have come in. It would be a good thing if a fair proportion of the whole coujld be held for the pubic good & and so keep our numbers down. However, it if seems best to all I am inclined to think that the holding will not be a bad investment. I should prefer to have you have a large holding rather than any one else simply because of your wish to keep the place as [illegible] as possible. Still I do not of course wish to make you feel under any pressure But let me know your wishes. I
think that Olney will probably take some extra lots. I shall take four & probably Garber will take some. I wish that the whole plot would be take by those now in.
Very truly yours,
W. T. Reid
