Order for the small bill for typewriting that I received yesterday. I saw Mr. Parsons today. Five thousand more of the last circular will probably be printed and on hand early next week and 100 or more will be sent to you. In the mean time will try to get up a new circular taking up the main objects noted in newspapers in favor of San Francisco. We realize that we have to strike hard and very fast now until the close of the special session. You go ahead with the leaflet you spoke of; we are with you in all that you may do, realizing that you are a host in yourself and we gratefully and admiringly appreciate all your works and plans.Faithfully yours,[Illegible]BANCROFT LIBRARY
