Reno, Nevada, January 3, 1917
A. W. Hendrick, President
University of Nevada
Dear President Hendrick:
I understand that the Board of Regents desire to have at the
earliest possible moment, a statement of the balances in the
various funds of the University, as of January 1, 1917, and
a statement likewise of the amount which has been expended
from the State Tax fund which was payable in December.
I wish you would convey the information to the Board of Re-
gents that I can furnish these balances in the various funds
of the University, if they feel it is my duty to do it, by
10 o'clock on Friday morning. I can also at the same time,
tell them the amount of money expended out of State funds
available for this semester.
Furthermore, if they feel it is my duty, I will post the
ledgers from November 30 to January 1st, and give them by
Monday morning a statement of the expenditures by Depart-
I have been told that Mr. Gaston finds difficulty in the
matter of the Revolving Fund vouchers which have been arrang-
ed for submission to Carson.
If you will kindly instruct him to lay them to one side I
will undertake the responsibility of seeing that they are
filed at Carson and that the money is returned to the Uni-
versity Revolving Fund.
Yours very truly,
/s/ C. H. Gorman
