By the sad death of MRS. JANE LATHROP STANFORD has come to the


a sorrow that is shared with the innumerable people who thus have lost a noble and beloved friend.

To some of us it was given to know both founders of the university, to join with them in the beginnings of the monument to their son, and, in the season of her second great affliction, to add our tribute of loving sympathy with the surviving founder. To most of us, she has been the chief source of the University, and the great object of its loyal affection.

During the years we were undergraduates she has dwelt among us, linking our loyalty more closely to herself and to


She has sweetened our lives with many happy college memories, the influence of her devoted purpose shall remain with us and as an inspiration of lasting good.

San Francisco, March 3rd, 1905.

Dr. David Starr Jordan,

Stanford University, Cal.

Dear Dr. Jordan:

Noting contents of your favor of March 2nd, I suppose all plans for any Alumni dinner at this time have been declared off.

. . . . . . . . . . . .

I guess you understand how deeply I feel Mrs. Stanford's death, and particularly the fact that she did not pass away quietly at Palo Alto. I had to some extent a tender relation with her, and this whole thing is a real sorrow to me, as it is to very many others.

An early answer to this letter will be a favor to me.

Very truly yours,

Charles K. Field.
