Sec: “Leland Stanford Jr University„
Will you be kind enough to inform me by letter or otherwise, if the “University„ will have a School of Technology by autumn '89.
I am now preparing a young man to enter such a school next year, but as his parents do not wish him to go to Boston, but prefer the coast, I have held out to them the hope of availing themselves of your institution.
At present I am following the terms of admission to the Boston school, and I should be glad to know your terms, if you have already decided upon such, or as soon as you may determine them.
Yours very respectfully
951 South Main St. Los Angeles. California

Leland Stanford University: Palo Alto, Cal.
Having the understanding that the university will admit students during the next school year, I desire to know what qualifications are required for admitance of bona fide residents and unavoidable expenses of the student.
Please inform me of the requirements and [oblige].

Is the college building finished and is the school in progress or if unfinished when will it be completed?
I would also desire the name of the President of the college, & if possible, the names of some of the trustees.
Hoping you will kindly answer my questions I remain
Yours Very Respectfully,

Hon. Leland Stanford
Dear Sir. I have a small building at Palo Alto Station, expecting later to build a home and give my children an opportunity to enjoy the privilege of the University. Part of the passenger trains stop here - but there is no good way to get in or out.
I have been informed that there will be an Avenue direct to the University from this station, but suppose it will not be completed for several months. In the meantime parties owning property in University Park (myself included) desire to be making some improvements and I write to ask you, if arrangements can and will be made, whereby we can have a temporary road, then we could reasonably ask for a Crossing, and those interested could get here and improvements would soon begin. I do not suppose the road would need any grading, but simply a "Right of Way" through (probably 200 or 300 yards) though a temporary fence might be needed. If you will see that this piece of road is opened you will receive the sincere thanks of myself and others.
