All I can endure and even bless if
the means we are useing[sic] will be
beneficial to Mr Stanford if his
life can be spared to carry out his
grand ideas in relation to the
University. He talks so little about his
future plans to others that only I know
what he can do by staying on Earth
a few years longer.

You mention your dear children being
so happy and enjoying their surroundings
so much I can picture it all - for I well
remember the joy the gladness that fills
my darlings heart when we first went
to that dear spot his happiness was as
complete as it could ever be to one not
in Heaven itself and when ill so far
away in Florence how often he would
say "Oh! if we were at Palo Alto dear Ma
ma." It was his last thought. Do you
wonder the place is so sacred to us.
Let your prayers go up for the blessing of
our good God to rest on my husband that
he may return with renewed vigor and
length of days I beleive [sic] so sincerely in the
good prayer brings to us, if I did not I could
not have undertaken this long trip from all
who would stand by me if sorrow came.
Remember us kindly to the Dr. And I ask as a
favor that he will send a cheerful letter to Mr. Stanford

occasionally Yours sincerely Jane L. Stanford
