Glen Elian, California, August 21, 1914,
Dear Jack London:•
In reply to your good lattar of August 3, 1914«
I imagine that wa came from tha same original stock but that we became early sap*
ereted after coming to dwell in America. The London branch that I am descended from was living
at Cape May, New Jersey, at tha time of BraddockV defeat, Shortly aftar ths olose of tha
French and Indian wars these Lcndone migrated into Pennsylvania and of oourse after that
spread slowly westward so that I was bom in California,
But prior to tha residence of the Londons at Cape May, Haw Jersey, they lived in
Connecticut and there tradition ceases, Wa have no zecord of how early they cams abroad from
By tha way, there ia a vary large Jewish family that goes by tha name of London*
Thaaa ware Austrian Java who oame over to England about two hundred yaars agofront Austria
and who ohanged thair nana to London* Since that time thay hava spread all over the world,
aa I wall know, because I have encountered them all over the world.
If you are ever out in California ba aura to look ma up.
Mr, Jaok London
