San Francisco, Cal.

(About Nov. 19 or 20, 1900)

Dear Mr. Clark:

The matter of the letters seems to me to be very simple. I want the clearance paper to which I am entitled after years of faithful work. Dr. Jordan wants the letters to which he is entitled. I am willing enough to give up the letters if I have the clearance paper. I can conceive of no reason why he should object to giving me the clearance paper.

The most valuable clearance paper to me is not an estimate of my work addressed to me but an estimate of it addressed to the personage I have been serving these years.

Is there any reason, then, why I should not receive tomorrow a letter like that on the enclosed sheet?

I should return at once letter dated May 21, and May 26.

I know nothing of any carbon copy of the Eliot letter. If I find such a letter I shall let you know. I know of no reason which I should not return it. I have a letter received from Pres. Eliot which I shall, of course, return when I get back to Stanford.

I can only add that I shall keep no copies of any letters returned.

Please understand that this has nothing to do with the check episode.

Sincerely yours,

(Signed) Edward A Ross.
