Nevada Block.

San Francisco June 23' 1893

Dear Mrs Stanford.

Of course I do not conceive that any
word of mine can alleviate the sorrow that Heaven alone
can cure, but as I will be unable to attend the funeral
tomorrow I thought it might be proper to assure you
of the deep sympathy of my family and self for you
irreparable loss.

I personally became acquainted with the Senator
in the year 1863. and our relations from that time until
his decease were those of old time friends. He was one
of the few great men who have achieved wealth and honor
and at the same time retained a love for his knid [sic]. All
he acquired seemed to broaden his great heart and generous
nature. I shall ever remember that genial smile that always
lighted up his countenance at our meetings, and the firm
grip of the hand-shake, as we parted.

Please accept at once the tear of sorrow
and sympathy.

Very Truly & Sincerely

Your Friend

N Hamilton
