Mark Hopkins Esq

Yours of yesterday recd.
The Judge has reported somewhat of
the difficulties that he encountered.
His report took me somewhat by
surprise. Before
going to Sacramento to announce
the result of negotiation, I agreed
that it should be a trade if my
associates approved. After submitting
the matter I certainly thought the
negotiation was approved, and
when the Judge and I came down
here we so stated, and proceeded
at once upon investigations and statements
of what was necessary to be done

One of the first things to be done
was for Mr. L. to get rid of the Hawthorn
Claim, and to do so he paid it $10,000
