Dear Mrs Marsh:

I wrote you some time ago, in response to your request for the use of Mr Marsh's letters to me, that I had given instructions to have them copied by the typewriter, as it would not be expedient to forward the bound volumes in which they, with many other letters, were contained. Just before leaving Washington, about two weeks ago, -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- I received the first installment of these letters, and wrote you that I would send them; but I am informed that by some oversight they are still on my table in Washington. I have, however, given instructions that they be sent to you by express. The remainder of the series will, I presume, be ready to send you in a short time.

Yours truly,

S F Baird
Mrs George P. Marsh,
Scarsdale,
West Chester Co.,
N.Y.
