Enclosed find my check on the Bank of California payable to your order for the sum of ($125,000.00) one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars.

Charley writes that he needs that amount. I raised to day $60,000.00 at 1 percent of the House of Davidson & Co. I am much pleased with this as it may lead to further negotiations. I have tried them before but could never get any encouragement.

Davidson I believe so no longer in the Company here. This house is agent for the Rostchchilds. I have had a very satisfactory talk with them and shall drop in and see them again

Yours truly

Leland Stanford

P.S. Bragg dont know any thing further about fences than that they did not sell any to the Freeport Land Co.

The Navigation Co say that they will refer the water matter to Redington with full authority to do as he pleases

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 [?] to get rid of the Hawthorn Claim, and to do so he paid it $10,000
