down and he will understand the matter better. Mr Laughlin has arranged so that "balance" note for 18,500 (about) shall go to [Siming?] and [Lenny?] takes Mr Laughlins note 18 months with our endorsements for the balance of his claim, we to hold the lands, less 20000 acres & 30 sections as security. In relation to the 1st mortgage bonds that Mr Huntington wrote about as having been used for the purchase of Stock, there were 210 used. What R Stock Park had [Mc?] accounts for the Bonds used in the purchase at par in currency. I will find out about Dorsey I know there was such a man arround Virginia.

I was expecting to go up to day but from the Judge's letter I presume it not to be necessary.

Your letter of yesterday rec'd

I fear you are correct in your surmises about Cole, I have had one general talk with him and from it I came to the same conclusion as yourself, I have arranged to take him out riding to day when I will have a fair chance. If nothing else can be done I hope to spike his battery.

A good many of those in the peoples party here say their movement has no hostility to Mr Conness, but I notice his enemies all seem to favor its movements. The way this city goes will be likely to determine the result and I think it should exercise the first consideration. The result of the contest here will have an unfortunate bearing on Sacramento. Yours truly

Cole adverse to Conness re-election.

Peoples party claim not to be against Conness but it appears to be acting in opposition.

Primary in San Francisco will determine the character of the State Convention.

Mark Hopkins,

Carr called on me this morning and said Mr [Cornuss?] thought if we did not intend to apply for State aid won the Western Pacific that it was desirable to say so to the Public. As things are now agitated I have no idea we will ask for aid. I think it best to take the ground that we are abundantly able to build the road with present means and that we wont ask for that but what is absolutely necessary I expect the judge down to night. Telegraph early tomorrow morning your views and Charleys too if he is in town no time to add more

Yours truly Leland Stanford
