Dear Mr. Watson:
This will acknowledge receipt of your letter of April 13, 1973
reminding ma that in the early part of 1972 you wrote to me in regard to
requesting and showin' an interest to acquire the right-of-way of the Rail-
road lying between Tarpon Springs and San Antonio, Florida.
You will recall, at that time in conference with my office, you
were advised that such consideration could, of course, not be given until
such time as application had been made with the proper governing bodies for
abandonment of this line and such approved, with the property declared surplus.
Said action has not yet been completed and, as quickly as this is
the case, I will advise you so that we may .ake formal report and recommen-
dation to our Management in this connection.
Very truly yours,
Mr. D. C. Hastings This connects with your file 26-301-2-G-17, and partic-
ularly to Mr. J. H. Elkins' "Memorandum for File" dated March 22,
Mr. P. L. Harper This connects with your file 400-X-10-7.
