D sir Your favor of 26th ult is received

We are Considerably Engaged in the North River Blue Stone business and are in a Position to furnish Any Kind & Quantity of that article --

We have Stone of all Sizes though the dimension You mention is Larger then are usually obtained & the facilities are hardly Sufficient for handling so Large Stone. The thickness Varies from 2 to 8 or 10 Inches of all Sizes

We usually sell them as they are dressed in the Quarry that is worked with what is called Smooth faces but Could have them Extra worked or Axed--& the Edges Cut to joint

Upon the Size thickness & the Amount of Work done upon them would solely depend the price & it would hardly be possible to describe the Various Kinds Sufficiently for You to Make up Your minds -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- which to prefer without Visiting Some Yard at Least to See the different Kinds & Qualities

If Either Your Self or any of the Committee Concludes to Visit us We will be very happy to Explain & Show the article that Can be had & in the position that it will be in

Truly Yours

H W R Fitch

(PS)

The North River Blue Stone are not Considered proof against fire but how Sensitive they are to fire Can hardly say--but We Suppose not more so than Brown Stone & perhaps not more than most Kinds are
