Dear Tim & May -

I know it will interest you both to hear from us and know while around us there has been sickness we with God's protection have escaped even the entire household. We find it more like winter here than it is in Washington it has snowed steadily nearly all day. We arrived last evening. Mr. Stanford desired

Mrs Jane L. Stanford. San Francisco, Cal.

My Dear Madam I take the liberty to write to you, also enclose this article cut from one of our local papers. While reading it I was struck by the Vast Amount of wealth that is in your keeping.

cruel to her - the dear Doctor idolized this precious gift from God. I can only pray for them that Our Good Father who gave them their children will in His own way shed light peace, and resignation to His will.

I remain here 'till the 14th of Oct and then if I continue well, I start for Italy, staying a few weeks at the largest cities, going as far as Sorrento stopping a few days at Castellamare where I passed a week with my dear son in 1880. I will take a steamer from Naples to go to Alexandria en route to Egypt.

I have made two visits to the Exposition. I take it in small doses. There is much that is chaff that we can see in all Fairs. The Picture gallery has a Portrait of Queen Victoria that excells [sic] all else in the great collection. I hope you will try and see it.

Give my kind regards to Mrs. and Miss Kohl.

To Tim and Lydia my tender love - for yourself dear May the same love that I have felt for you.

Yours faithfully

Mrs. Leland Stanford

mention it, but dear May you know I would not under any condition want you to give him up if you care to retain him. I have three faithful Chinese boys - Joe, Wing, and Charley, and had I not been touched to the heart by Kees devotion to me would not have been so indiscreet as to say what I did. You are to keep him if you need him. He is faithful trusting and affectionate. I sent him away because he became quarrelsome. I want you to deal frankly

with me dear friend and I leave it to you to decide the matter, for if you should give him up, if you have become attached to him, I should have a sorrow that would not let my heart rest. I love you dear May and not anything I shall ever do will weaken the bond betwixt us - I have such a contempt for any one who will entice a servant away from any one let alone a dear friend

Hoping you Tim and Lydia are well and having a happy summer

I am, as always your sincere friend

sails from Liverpool on the 7th. We had planned to go then to Switzeland [sic] as England is quite cold but hardly dare risk it on account of the Cholera.

Your's affectionately
