Dear Sir

I have yours of the 30th making inquiries as to the feasibility of your obtaining a charter for a Railroad from Constantinople to the Persian Gulf.

As to the feasibility I can only say that from a personal interview I had with the Sultan when I was in Constantinople I judged him to be very much interested in the subject of such a road. He asked me if I would undertake its construction and I have no doubt if I had consented he would have given most liberal concessions

I think such a road ought to be of great commercial value as it would pass through a rich agricultural country partially settled and would offer the shortest quickest route between Europe and the great heart of Asia for the social and commercial business of the principal countries of both continents

of course such a Road would complete successfully for passengers and I think a very large portion of the freight is of such a valuable character that it would seek the most expeditions route in preference to the slower one of less cost

Very truly yours Leland Stanford

With kind regards your friend Leland Stanford

My Dear Wife

Have been here two days and am able to pronounce a little about this place. It is small and very quiet. The people seem to be very sedate and earnest to give the waters a fair chance. The visitors are mostly German and they and the place have a very different air from [Carlablace?]

The water is not disagreeable and in fact rather pleasant to one who is thirsty, but otherwise to one who has to take three large glasses before breakfast. I am myself observing the directions
