Agent Wells Fargo Express Co.,
San Diego, Calif.,

Dear Sir:-- I enclose you a letter from the Manager of our hotel, stating the first shipment of fruit from my ranch was 66 lbs. short, stolen enroute. Will you please make inquiries and advise me whether this is not a just claim against your Company.

Yours truly, E.S. Babcock
