Central Pacific Railroad

CPRR Crew - 

You made a good report about The Big Four. It seems they want to make money fast. I am afraid that Charlie Crocker is taking dangerous shortcuts in laying the track too quickly.

I have offered to buy back their stock in the Central Pacific and find new investors who will build my railroad slowly and carefully. I leave tonight for New York.  Wish me luck.
