Ah Wing arrived from China and is now at the house and I told him to remain there until your return and you would then decide whether you wish to retain him or dismiss some of the other servants.

Dear Sister:

I met Mr. Hodges this morning on the train enroute to this City. He had with him drawings to be submitted to parties for furnishing the steel work. I called his attention to the article in the Daily Palo Alto regarding the closing of the Church and he was rather displeased to think that I should say anything to him about it. I am however under the impression that he gave instructions or said something to the watchman. I told Mr. Hodges it was your wish that the Main entrance to the Church should be kept open and the watchman retained, so the parents of the students who visit the University might have an opportunity to visit the Church and enjoy the beautiful windows, mosaics and frescoeing. I also informed him that it was understood that Mr. Scott-Brook should be there every evening at sundown and play on the Organ. They are getting Mr. Brook interested in all their entertainments and he has been away from the University about 10 days in the Southern portion of the State with a lot of Professors and others who went to Los Angeles to give the play "Antigone". I think on your return, you will have to give Mr. Brook definite instruction as to his duties.

He likes to make himself agreeable and is a very gentlemanly fellow
