My dear Mrs Stanford

I regret exceedingly leaving California without seeing you again and believe me it has been one of the bright spots in life meeting you & renewing the old acquaintance of early years - for in seeing you it seems as though I had met Mr Stanford also & I wish it had been possible to have been here during his life.
