My dear Sir,

I presume you are aequainted with D Charles, of [Muelo Park?] He is a Homeopath I believe. If any Physician should be needed at the University I would like him to have an opportunity to attend though of course the students cay experience their preference. yours truly Leland Stanford

Dr David S Jordan My dear sir,

I intended to instruct Mr. Lathrov before I left California to place the names of Dr Grace and Miss Amer on the pay roll, but forgot to do so. He wrote to me, however, some time ago in regard to the matter and our reciept of this letter I sent him the necessary instructions. Of course in all appointments of professors I rely on your judgement knowing full well that you will have no supnumeraries

I am very glad to learn that you have probably secured a competent Mistress for Roble Hall the portion is certainly a most important one.

In reading over your address at the opening of the University I find these words on p23. A Generous education should be the birthright of every man and woman in America. This strikes me as a great truth and of such importance that I would like it to be used as one of the mottoes of the University. I have read your address several times and each time I read it I am better pleased.
