My Dear Professor Jordan

Permit to tender
you my sincere sympathies on
the sudden death of the late
Mrs Stanford. It was very sad
indeed. I was shown their beautiful
residence in Nob Hill, when out to
the coast some years ago, you were
also kind enough to send me some
information to inquiries made by
me some time ago. wishing you all
success and hoping the University
is flourishing I beg to remain

Yours very truly

R. Macdonald
