Dear Doctor:

As regards the mechanical Engineering Department I
wish to say that if the assistants are good mechanics it out to
be possible to have their services for about one hundred dollars
a month.

I think that Professor Gale is out of place having had
the chief position in the department reducing him to an inferior
one has a tendency to demoralize him and his usefulness.

I understand he is absent a great part of his time. I
make these suggestion on account of having some familiarity with
machinery and my knowledge of the terms upon which intelligent
mechanics can be obtained.

I have received a most gratifying letter from Pres. White
and as I think it would please you greatly I inclose a copy here
with. He gives us some hints that are very valuable the
complimentary terms with which he speaks of you pleased me greatly.

Yours very truly

Leland Stanford
