Hon. Geo. P. Marsh

Dear Sir

Father wishes to send me and my brother Preston to America to exhibit his Statue of America but as we are both still American citizens we do not know whether on arriving in that country we could not be obliged by conscription to serve as soldiers -- I shall be much obliged to you for letting me know what you can on this subject at your earliest convenience as the time for our departure is fast -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- approaching -- I was born in America (Cincinnati) & am 29 My brother was born here and is 21 -- Father is still an american citizen never having been naturalized in Italy -- We intend starting on the 28th of this Month if all is right

All the family join me in kind regards to Mrs Marsh & yourself

Believe me

Yours Very Sincerely

Longworth Powers note:Jan. 8th1864
