7 August 1961
Dear Mr. Muller:
I am writing to ask you and Mr. Woolpert to give we some advice in connection with the desire that my wife and I have to get some water from Salmon Creek, for use on our ranch at Salmon Creek, Monterey County.
The Salmon Creak ranch contains 160 acres. It lies to the northwest of Salmon Creek, and our southeast boundary, which is irregular, runs approximately parallel to Salmon Creek, for about 3,000 feet. The closest approach of our boundary to the creek itself is 500 feet.
There is a ridge running through our ranch, such that approximately half of the ranch drains into Salmon Creek. The other half drains into the ocean. More precisely, I estimate that 70 acres of the 160 drains into Salmon Creek.
We get water for household use and agricultural use (drinking water for cattle, some irrigation) from several springs. The springs supply water through the summer, but the supply is limited, and we feel that it would be better to have an additional supply from Salmon Creek. We also would like to consider the possibility of having same irrigated pasture, to provide grass for cattle.
The property around our property, aside from the ocean, is all in the Los Padres National Forest. The only privately owned property near us is the ranch to the southwest, owned by Mrs. Thomas Evans (Mrs. Evelyn Evans). Her ranch is about one mile away. At no point is her ranch close to Salmon Creek.
The road crosses Salmon Creek at an elevation of about 500 feet. Above the Salmon Creek Falls, at an elevation of about 400 feet, there is the intake of a pipeline, one inch, I think, for water for use at the Salmon Creek Ranger Station. This pipe may be approximately 1000 feet long.
We have in mind going somewhat farther up Salmon Creek to get water, to an elevation of approximately 500 feet, in order to provide gravity water and get over the ridge. The intake would then be about 1000 feet from our eastern boundary, and it would accordingly be necessary to get permission from the Forest Service to run the pipe this distance of 1000 feet.
It is accordingly my understanding that we are the only private property owner in the neighborhood who would be interested in making use of water from Salmon Creek. The terrain on the southeast aide of the creek is such, that it seems to me unlikely that Mrs. Evans would have any interest. The intake that we propose lies above Salmon Creek Falls, and there is the possibility that the Forest Service would object to taking water from the Creek, because of the decreased scenic value of the Falls. In the winter months the Falls are beautiful. In the summer the amount of water that flows is small enough so that the scenic value is very small, and I do not think that the decreased flow could be considered very significant in the summer.
Salmon Creek is approximately six miles long. It drains an area of about ten square miles, extending as far as Silver Peak, Lyon Peak, and Three Peaks.
I should like to know what the water-rights laws say about the possibility of our making use of some of the water from Salmon Creek.
My wife and I shall be grateful to you for your help.
- Letter from LP to Clarence Pickett, RE: LP discusses with Pickett how his relationship with Norman Cousins has deteriorated. LP points out that Cousins called the Conference Against the Spread of Nuclear Weapons a “neutralist rally” and has also failed to reply to LP’s letter of June 2nd. LP continues to cooperate with Sane and hopes that the organization can be changed so that it will be more effective.

- Letter from LP to Norman Cousins, RE: LP notes that the principle target of his recent efforts to improve Sane has been the implementation statement of July 29, 1960. LP thinks that if he and Cousins and Pickett had been working together that this statement would not have been issued. LP’s personal feelings about Cousins have been influenced by Cousins’s failure to reply to LP’s letter of May 29, 1960.

He was one of the other speakers at the Symposium on Scientific Creativity at the Third World Congress of Psychiatry, and his speech was in the same style as Szent-Györgyi’s. He hasn’t written anything up yet, but would if there was the possibility of its publication.
