Palo Alto, Cal., Nov. 23, 1901.

Mr. Peterson,

Dear Sir:

The bearer, Mr. Brummett from Arkansas, is very anxious indeed to find occupation in order to earn the necessary means to permit him to go through a course at the University. If he passes an examination and is admitted, could you not give him work in the Museum in order to allow him to earn a little something as soon as possible.

Yours respectfully,

Jane L. Stanford

[hand written across bottom front of letter]

This is the only man Mrs. Stanford ever asked me to put to work. He proved to be a thief & rank imposter.

There is nothing in your two letters regarding this, but I noticed from one of the papers you so kindly sent me that you informed the newspaper reporter that it would be placed in the Museum at the University, as it was presented to you by some of the Stanford University Students located in the Islands. To-morrow Friday, I will take the same with me to Palo Alto, and on Saturday will have it placed in the Museum under lock and key.

I note what you say in yours of the 25th of having received a letter from Mrs. R. H. Newton, in which she states that her husband will accept the position as rector of the Stanford Memorial Church.
