Mrs. Leland Stanford,

1701 K. St. Washington. D. C.

My Dear Mrs. Stanford:

In reply to yours of the 8th, inst, concerning the monument or statue to be erected at Monterey, I have this to say:

I have been anxiously waiting to hear from the Western Marble Co. of San Jose, but as yet have been received no note from them. I have today addressed them a letter concerning this matter and spoken of your explicit instructions. Doubtless I shall soon receive a reply from them. I stated that I was at their service on any day to carry out your requests as to the details of certain work, etc.

I assure you that I am both willing and anxious to attend to this, and will do so as soon as I am advised by these people.

Very sincerely your friend,

ST. Gage

Mrs. Leland Stanford,

1701 K. St. Washington, D. C.

Dear Mrs. Stanford:

I am in receipt of yours of the 16th, inst. in reply to mine of the 9th, which you had received the day previous. It contained suggestions relative to the Museum Building, and several regarding the architects, Mess. Percy and Hamilton. I read the letter to Mr. Percy, and he informed me that most of the details suggested in the letter had been answered by him recently in his correspondence.

The box, which you desire to place in the corner stone, and the suggestions made concerning coins, etc. is being properly looked after, and will be ready for occasion as soon as needed. I am informed by the architects that this will be some time in the future, not earlier than the month of February, as a large amount of work hasbeen perfomed before reaching that point.

On the 19th, inst I wrote to the Wester Marble Co. at San Jose your wishes, and your requests of me regarding the statue to be erected at Monterey, and I yesterday received from them the enclosed reply. I do not know what you would have me do in the matter further than the foregoing advice ----; if on receipt of this you will write me what your wishes are. I will take pleasure in seeing that they are carried out.

have had sufficient rain for the present, and if we shall have an abundance in March and April no doubt the season will round out favorably to California.

Christmas week has rarely ever been so pleasant as the one now nearly past. I was absent from home on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday visiting Ione, but on Christmas day was at home with my family. We had a Christmas family dinner without visitors, and Mrs. Gage informed me that this was the first time in our family life that we have been alone at that time. I need not say that we very much enjoyed ourselves. I myself have no recollection of ever enjoying a Christmas so much before.

Mrs. Gage and the children desire to be kindly remembered to yourself and Governor Stanford, and to send to you their Holiday Greetings.

In looking after the matters with which you have entrusted me Mrs. Stanford, please do not, for a moment, think that you are imposing a task upon me, as I shall regard it as a pleasure to carry out your wishes as I understand them.

Yours sincerely,

ST. Gage

Mrs. Leland Stanford,

1701 K. St. Washington, D. C.

Dear Mrs. Stanford:

I have just received your letter of Dec. 26th, written from New York, in which you inquire as to the boy Ariel and his present whereabouts.

Soon after I returned from Ogden I called upon the German lady who has him in charge, and found her at home. I did not see the boy for he was at school. I had a very pleasant conversation with her, and found her to be a woman of more than ordinary intelligence, consdering her nationality and surroundings. I learned from her that the family was very much attached to the boy; that she had no objections to his finding a better place and more advantages than those they were able to give him. She seemed to be in doubt as to the ability of the party in Santa Barbara to do better by him than she was doing; that she had received no satisfactory assurance of their ability to do so, etc. etc. and that when she had such assurances she would not object to his being sent to them. She desired that he should remain with them until after the Christmas holidays, as they had made considerable preparation, and the boy was interested therein. The Germans, you will remember, make very much of Christmas day.

I immediately wrote to the lady of Santa Barabara, informing her of the situation here regarding the boy, and have since re
