   Please ascertain and report to this Bureau as promptly as possible whether the cross ties of the West Point & Montgomery R. Rd are sufficiently long and in good enough condition to advise of changing the track from 4 ft 8 in to 5 foot gauge. 
   Please telegraph your opinion in regard to the change in any event and the time it will probably take.
