obeyed, and tho I close up, as an employe I will hope to continue as a friend and I stand ready at any and all times, to do for you at this end everything in my power. I feel better for having been in the service of such a man God rest his soul, and go out in the world full of hope and almost confident that something will turn up, by which I can provide for these that God has given me.

I have hopes that Mr Perkins will employ me but dont know anything definite about it.

Hoping that you will have nothing but joy and happiness for the remainder of your life

I am as ever yours obediently and friend

John B. McCarthy

several persons, I know to be friends, and they passed favorably upon the work. I did not want to worry you in regard to the details as the book progresses feeling that you knew I would do the best that I could do or that could be done regardless of the efforts. The publication was delayed for over three months by Mr. Caminetti, who delivered a eulogy and then held it back for revision. We waited for nearly three months for him to return it and finally had to go to press without it. He was requested by vote and personally, several times to send in his address but would not do so. I did not regret it, for I did not want anything that was forced to get in the volume, preferring that it should be spontaneous or not at all. There were other delays also, but I will not annoy you with the details.

Senator Perkins will send you fifty copies (or at least, I will do so for him,)

bound in cloth, for such distribution as you may desire. He will have in all 240 copies. So will Senator White and each of the House delegation a smaller number. I will frank those I send you of Senator Perkins quota so that you can send through the mails as an official publication. I will also send a copy to each of the Californians mentioned in the volume, the pall bearers, engineers and others for Senator Perkins, and with his compliments. I hope you will like the portrait. The Senators who have seen it think it a fine likeness. I purposely had the features appear full for the Prince photograph made him rather full in the face and I think that the dear Governor's friends would rather see him at his best than otherwise.

Please let me know when I shall send the fifty additional copies, and I will respond promptly

Yours very sincerely

John B. McCarthy
