My Dear Boy

Your letter of the 28th giving the pleasing intelligence that Mama "is better" received this day. I have another letter of yours not acknowledged. I have been a little uncertain where to send as Tuesday of this week had been [?] ed as a possible time for your adventure from Havre.

I hope mama will be well enough to join me at Homburg. My time will be up here next Wednesday.

I am doing fairly, but last night had trouble with the back of my head. Love to mama.

Your affectionately Father Leland Stanford

The great trouble is the poisonous effects of the morphine she still takes

Her system is so pregnated with the drug that she suffers great depression of spirits where deprived of it, but the dose is gradually being lessened. If it were not for the morphine she would be now well unless possibly occasional trouble from piles -
