Honolulu, Hawaii, Jan 28, 1907

Dr. David Starr Jordan Stanford University Calif.

Dear Dr. Jordan:

Yours of Jan 8 relative to Dr Shorey at hand. From three and a half years association with him I would place no reliance whatever on any statement made by Shorey in writing, under oath or otherwise unless I had very full extraneous evidence to support his contentions. He has been known to report one way officially and diametrically opposite for a fee in the same case.

I was not in Honolulu at the time of the Stanford case but I do know that Shorey was of the opinion that strychnine was the cause of death as long as he believed that he would have to look to the High Sheriff for payment for his services.
