New York, February 12, 1898.

My dear Mrs Stanford:

In conversation with you some two years ago you expressed a desire to sell out your interests in the Pacific Coast Railroads. At that time I had such large contracts outstanding that it was impossible for me to entertain the proposition. If you feel like opening up negotiations at the present time and will give me a list of the properties with the values you place upon them I will consider it and in connection with some friends might conclude to make the purchase.

I may say to you that the market here in the Southern Pacific Stocks is purely a "made Market" and should any considerable quantity of the stock be put upon the Market it would have a very bad effect on the price of the stock.

In any event I trust you will treat this letter as confidential.

Yours very truly,

John W. Mackay
