CHARLES H. TWEED

COUNSEL 23 BROAD STREET

NEW YORK Aug. 29, 1900.

Mrs. Jane L. Stanford

c/o Messrs. Speyer Bros.,

London, England.

My dear Mrs. Stanford,

I have received your letter of 19th inst., acknowledging the receipt of my telegram advising you of Mr. Huntington's death and I am very much obliged to you for the kind expressions contained in your letter. Mr. Huntington's death was a very sudden one, as he lived only 10 or 15 minutes after the attack commenced; but I suppose that such a death in full mental and comparatively full physical strength would have been the one which Mr. Huntington himself would have chosen. He had seemed very well up to the time of his departure for the Adirondacks and the four days of his life there were full of enjoyment of his surroundings of which he was so fond.

There are of course many consolations to be thought of and considered in connection with his death, many of which you very kindly suggest in your letter, and yet, after all, it is most difficult to realize that he has really passed away, and that a life full of such earnest and strenuous activities has really terminated.

Mr. Huntington was very much touched by your thoughtfulness and kindess in coming to call upon him just before you sailed for Europe and spoke to me many times about it after your departure.

Yours truly,

Charles H. Tweed (hand written)

March 3, 1902.

Mrs. Leland Stanford Palo Alto, Cal.

My dear Mrs. Stanford,

I have received your letter of 24th ult.expressing your kind feelings in reference to the Southern Pacific pass which I need not say it afforded me very great pleasure to provide for you.

We have since had some telegraphic correspondence in reference to accomodations for Dr. Heber Newton on his journey to California, and I was very sorry to find that every drawing room was taken for the day you mentioned including the drawing room on an additional car which was to be taken on the train, and which exhausted all available accommodations. Dr. Newton advised me, however, that he had been able to arrange for a drawing room on the Atchison train which would enable him to reach California at the desired time, and I hope his journey has been a pleasant and agreeable one, and that the service for which he is going to California will pass off in a manner satisfactory to yourself and will properly bring to the attention of large numbers of people in Califorina nad elsewhere some of the lessons which ought to be learned from the life of your deceased husband.

Yours truly, Charles H. Tweed (hand written)

[Typed] March 7, 1902 Dr. Newton's trip.

Mrs. Leland Stanford, Palo Alto, Cal.

My dear Mrs. Stanford,

I have your letter of 28th ult. in reference to pro- curing accomodations for Rev. Heber Newton on his trip to California. I need not assure you that I shall be most happy to be of service to you at any time and hope you will call upon me freely.

I was very sorry that I was unable to provide the accomodations which were desired by Dr. Newton. I had hoped that I might be able to do this by arranging for having an extra car upon the train, but ascer- tained that the only available extra car was to be attached to the train and that the accommodations in it had been already sold.

I hope you will not hesitate to call on me at any time if I can be of any service to you here.

Yours very truly, [Signed] Charles H. Tweed
