Your letter of yesterday rec'd. Appreciating the fact that it must necessarily be some time before we can draw more Govt aid I have been looking around here for money and find the market rather favorable, still I have got nothing certain unless it is $90000 which I had partly got the promise of before my last visit to Sacramento, this sum I shall probably get inside of ten days.
I called to day and had some talk with Mills about making coupons payable in London. He thinks if we intend to negotiate our bonds there it is advisable. Would it not be well to provide for payment in London at an agency on all coupons where notice was given at the agency 30 days before coming due
Such a clause would have a tendency to prevent coupons going from NY to London for payment
about surveys and shops whatever the rest of you conclude will be satisfactory to me.
You understand it best and will no doubt meet the necessities of the case, and that above must be the wisest policy now -
Please tell the Judge that [McL?] says for him to keep the papers until he comes down. I regret to hear of the accident to Mrs Charles [Crocker?] Also to learn that the Judge is not very well.
George Aldrich is down here He tells me that there is a wide spread prejudice among the Chinamen against Sissons. This he did not wish me to mention, but I have taken the liberty to mention it to you -
Do not let him ever hear of [it?].-
From what Chinamen have said to me I am inclined to think he states a fact.
From Leland Stanford - May 17/67 As to finances etc. As to making coupons payable in Europe.
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, [?] 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 wre 210 used. What R Stock Park had [?] 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.
May 18. 1867.
As to the [?] Note & its consideration. McLaughlin intends to make [Park?] take it back. Mc accounts for the 210. 1st Mtg. Bond to Park. Will find out who Dorsey is.

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 [Conroy?], 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
