Dear Sir

Mr Mead sent me a model of his design for the statue on the dome, while I was at Boston. It was badly broken, & I returned it to him for repairs, & for some changes deemed necessary. He has now repaired & changed it & you will receive it by express. There will be needed some verbal explanations -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- about the execution of parts which could not be clearly represented in so small a model, & these Mr Mead will furnish the carver, if he is not employed to execute it himself. Mr Silloway will give directions with regard to the dimensions and the mode of constructing & putting together the work which directions are adopted by the Commissioners as a part of the plan authorised to be prepared by them for the statue. I have conferred with Mr Silloway on this subject, -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- & perhaps he has already sent the directions. If not, he will do so soon.

Yours respectfully

G. P. Marsh for self & other commissioners note:Hon T. E. PowersSupt. constructionof State House
