meteor he thinks he can find near Phoenix until he finds it. I have seen meteors fall myself and thought they were very near but found that other people long distances apart had seen the same meteor and all thought it fell quite close to them.

I telegraphed you today as follows: In regard to engaging Professors White Dudley Jeuks and Angel I cannot advise, You must exercise your own judgement as to the force needed.

Yours very truly

Leland Stanford

My dear Doctor

I have several letters from you unanswered but I have concluded to defer answering them until i can see you in person which will be very shortly as I expect to start for California n the 1st of April. My visit out there is mainly to see you and converse with you about the University and its needs. It is my intention to visit Europe this Summer.

We hope to have the pleasure of meeting President White while we are in California as I see by the papers that he will probably be there in April.
