My dear Sir

Your letter of November 9th was duly handed to me at Stana Rosa on my visit there Saturday. I regret that I forgot to send you the portrait for you hall. I t has been my intention for a long time. I will have it attended to at once and as soon as the portrait can be made ready I will send it to you. I suppose you want it at Oakland. I herewith return your enclosure.

Yours very truly

While you kindly suggest that she may remain with me for a year I will readily yield the privilege you grant regarding her at any time you may desire it as she is your own to do with as you please.

It was rumored in the papers that you were coming out here but I find this to be without sufficient foundation. I shall be very glad indeed if you will visit this State and it
