Mrs. Leland Stanford

Stanford University, Calf

Dear Madam,

Rev Chauncey Murch of Luxor Egypt has just written me to the effect that he has shipped to my care to be forwarded to the Leland Stanford Jr University one case containing some art works that you purchased when there; when this case arrives I will notify you.

The object of this letter is to notify you that the case is on the way.

Yours very truly

Alfred Putnam

I met Mr. Morrison this morning at a Meeting of the Bay District Land Co. who had returned with his wife from the Hawaiian Islands yesterday. He informed me that he had the pleasure of meeting you and that you were feeling very much rested and you were about to depart for Japan. Mr. Morrison is the attorney for the Crocker people. I am afraid that Dr. Jordan is going to have considerable trouble in dispensing with the services of Prof. Pease and I for one am sorry, but Dr. Jordan is now trying to excuse himself in a way that shows to me that he is weak. I was indirectly informed that he had sent Mr. Clark his secretary, to Prof. Pease to tell him he would give him his Sabbathical Year, on full pay, as he (Prof. Pease) had not been away from the University for 11 years. I am also told that Prof. Pease has been east visiting the different Colleges and he is liable, when asked for his resignation by Dr. Jordan to fly into the newspaper offices, and try in every way to humiliate Dr. Jordan. All this comes from Dr. Jordan not being firm, but as I wrote you before he does not give the institution the proper time and attention it should have. He is away so much looking for public admiration that he neglects, I am afraid, his duties at the University, and in consequence the Professors do just as they please. I am in hopes that whatever does take place that your name will not be dragged into it, as you have kept away from it, and there is no reason why you should be misjudged in this Pease matter.

I enclose herewith a letter from Thos Welton Stanford of Australia addressed to yourself, also a copy of a letter received from Chauncey Murch, of Luxor, Egypt. The original I am holding in this office. You will note there is attached to Mr. Murch's letter a bill of $69.83. On arrival of the goods I will pay the same, as I suppose it is all right. The proper applications will probably have to be made in order to have the goods come in duty free, and placed in the Museum.
