November, 1863

CPRR Crew -

Did you see the telegram about Judah's death? Now we really have to hurry. We must beat the Union Pacific to Utah! Did you get that information for me? How long will I have to wait for the new locomotives from the East Coast? How are they coming from New York? Send a telegram back to me quickly with your answers.
