Tehama House San Francisco May 15th/61
I received yours of April 9th and was glad to hear you were all so well. My health is very good now I start this evening for Virginia City I shall try and sell out sell out as soon as possible and return East I can tell better when I get thare this time. In regard to the power of Attorney you sent the Lawyers here say it is of no account and if I should have a chance to sell I might have some trouble in giving a title So I have got a deed made out for you to sign and send to me. It will be necessary to go before a Calafornia Commissioner to acknowledge it, if you are going down [illegible] you can do it thare I may not want to use it but I thought best to have it here in case I should want to sell if you have been down. I think you will be able to get done legally in Windsor or Woodstock I do not intend to sell except I can get a very good price.
