   I enclose you the within order from Q. M. J. H. McMahen at Grand Junction, as a specimen of some of the trouble we have. This ??? orders are not unfrequent, and often interferes with the most important business, and to the great determent of running trains regularly or safely. You as a practical business you will readily see the necessity of permitting as little of this kind of business being done as possible.
Yours Truly
