DAVID ECCLES, PRES HENRY H. ROLAPP, SECY. OFFICE OF AMALGAMATED SUGAR CO. LA GRANDE, ORE. Oct. 28”11. Hon Henry H Rolapp Ogden, Utah. Dear brother:- I presume you know that we have orders from the President to get acreage and continue this factory for another year. I want to say here and now that this decision has not been given from anything said by me. I had fully made up my mind that the end had come. The last evidence and influence I fancy came largely from brother Kerr. Now the fact is this has been an excellent year and I doubt us doing better save that we may increase the acreage. and to this end I shall at once devote my energies. Now Judge I have had free transportation all the time I have worked for you and the company has had the full benifit of it while as a matter of true justice it should not have it, but I have taken pleasure in making that much showing for the Company at least. Now the change for pass next season are not good and as a matter of fact I am fearful I will not get them, at least this is the way the straws lean just now. I want you to give me permission to buy an Auto I can get a Maxwell here which sells for $1250. for $1,085. which will do my work nicely and the cost of maintance will not be as great as a team. Then again I have just now a letter from Wallowa asking me to go there as one mR southwick wants to plant 60 acres of beets and I beleive by getting around this fall and winter I can get quite a lot The train serveice is very bad, taking me two days to do five minutes work while with an Auto I could get to Wallowa and back easily in one DAVID ECCLES, PRES HENRY H. ROLAPP, SECY. OFFICE OF AMALGAMATED SUGAR CO. LA GRANDE, ORE. day. Then when I do go there I am either on foot or have to hire a livery rig whicj costs me $4.50 per day and expenses, so that I am sure it will be good financial policy to buy a rig and at once. I think too that we will operate in Baker County next season as I have several prospects there. The fact is being as the boss has told us to go ahead I want to do my very best to make some money and I will do all within my power to this end. Of course you may say but this is fall. Well that is true but I can use it for one month at least and the price paid now is actual COST. The machine is billed direct to me and no agents between. Th machine is 25 h.p. and ample for my use I will guarantee to make it pay its way and then some. I hope your health is improved ere this. Very truly. F S Bramwell Then again is we canvass this local territory is sugar sales the machine is a great necessity, and the presidnt has so orderd us to take care of the loacal market and I have sent samples everywhere and the results are already showing up.
