[modern? notation] Vol 19 W. M. Stewart Letter - [book?] p 434 Nevada Historical Society [/modern? notation]

June 23, 1894.

My dear Mrs. Stanford:

I deeply sympathize with you on account of the annoyance occasioned by the foolish attempt to charge your husband's estate with the indebtedness of the Pacific Railroads. There is certainly no liability of stockholders in the Central Pacific Railroad to the Government, and the courts must so declare. But in the meantime it must be regretted by all good people that you should be annoyed or impeded in the great work in which you and your late husband so nobly engaged.

I enclose you a letter signed by a large number of Senators, expressing their views and sympathy, which you are at liberty to use in any way you deem proper.

.................................................................. Yours, sincerely,

.................................................................. Wm M Stewart

Mrs. Leland Stanford,

Palo Alto, California.
