SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 27th, 1890. 18

Mrs. Leland Stanford,

1701 K. St. Washington, D. C.

Dear Mrs. Stanford:

I am in receipt of yours of the 16th, inst. in reply to mine of the 9th, which you had received the day previous. It contained suggestions relative to the Museum Building, and several regarding the architects, Mess. Percy and Hamilton. I read the letter to Mr. Percy, and he informed me that most of the details suggested in the letter had been answered by him recently in his correspondence.

The box, which you desire to place in the corner stone, and the suggestions made concerning coins, etc. is being properly looked after, and will be ready for occasion as soon as needed. I am informed by the architects that this will be some time in the future, not earlier than the month of February, as a large amount of work hasbeen perfomed before reaching that point.

On the 19th, inst I wrote to the Wester Marble Co. at San Jose your wishes, and your requests of me regarding the statue to be erected at Monterey, and I yesterday received from them the enclosed reply. I do not know what you would have me do in the matter further than the foregoing advice ----; if on receipt of this you will write me what your wishes are. I will take pleasure in seeing that they are carried out.
