San Francisco, Cal. Jan 23rd, 1884 Hon. Leland Stanford, My Dear Governor: We have been very much pleased to hear of your continued improvement and trust that Mrs.Stanford and yourself will return in splendid health. I send you a clipping from a Los Angeles paper which may be of interest. I had a cablegram sent to you yesterday relative to the Delegation from California. The object of the telegram was to learn how you stood upon the subject. We think there will be no doubt of an election. California will be unanimous. The Colton case has been continued until the 6th, of Feb. There are so many counsel in the case that it is difficult for them to proceed in the case more than eight or ten days at a time without discommoding some of them. Your counsel are confident of a favorable result in the case. Californians are somewhat disturbed about crop prospects. A great deal of grain has been put in, but whether we have a crop will depend upon February rains. Judge Sanderson, Judge McKisick and Judge Brown all join with me in kind regards and desire to be remembered to you. Sincerely Yours [Creed?] Haymond

I made arrangements with a prominent news dealer of this city to obtain a copy of that paper if possible but it being a far back number he was unsuccessful. From the brief description in the [Marysville?] paper, judging that your political views were so much more

broad and liberal than those of most of us, I felt disappointed in not being able to obtain the New York paper in [order?] to learn more of your plans in regard to your proposed enterprise. If you have any papers or circulars relating to it, will you kindly cause one to be mailed tome, or let me know where I can obtain further information in regard to the foregoing, and oblige Yours truly [J.?]A. Heald "U.S. American office, 1150 Market St. City.
