Think we can get work done at Salt Lake.

Brigham has taken contract from Union Co &c.

His son with contract with us &c.

They want line south of the Lake.

Union Co will reach Weber Canon 1st Jany.

They lay track day & night.

We must do our big work at home.

Friend Mark,

Mr Corning gave me report of business of the Express Co. I placed them in my right hand drawer (upper one) I would consult with Corning and fix the [?] prices and tell the secretary to give [?] to the Cos what they will have to pay hereafter. Those Dutch [?] Flat Chinamen have passed on to the graders, yesterday morning about 25 men left and this morning 15 say they want to go below. I shall put the forces at work from the other end as much as possible.

Yours truly

Leland Stanford
