Daughter Mary

I confess the soft impeachment. We are treacherous (not voluntarily, but neccesarily) in the matter of the promised visit. Seriously I do not think Mrs M. could bear to travel ten miles, or even five, by coach. She must go to Burlington, & needs the remainder of the time to [...] under the care of Dr Vandeveer at Plattsburgh. We shall sail in a few weeks, & go by way of London. If possible we shall go through Germany & France by steam -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- boat & RRoad to the Mediterranean, & so by water to Constantinople. We leave tomorrow morning, & hope to reach N.Y. on Monday.

I write in haste unspeakable, but will make it up when I shall have seen the Grand Turk and now, dear Mary, wish love from me & mine to you & yours, farewell.

Yours truly

G P Marsh

Dear Baird


I believe you must disgorge Kröyer. Send it if you please, to Garrigue's for me. What can I do for you in Turkey? I think it will be all right [line missing] the Smith -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- sonian. Jewett will do all he can, & if Mr Bache is right there will be no trouble. Henry is here, but is a very unpunctual correspondent.

Yours truly

G P M
P.S. I have seen young [Cuyler?] & like him. No Sec. is allowed to the Turkish mission except the Dragoman, who will not be removed, & of course I can do nothing for Mr C. The appointment is by the President & Senate
