Dear Mr. Marsh

Every day since receiving your kind note I have tried to see you at the office of the Embassy,--but every day I have been too early or too late. I hope for better fortune tomorrow, but I write this lest the same ill luck should then attend me. If the weather should be fairly good,--of which I fear there is little chance,--my sisters hope to see Mrs. Marsh tomorrow. My Mother never makes visits,--and I am sorry to say that my wife's health is such that for the present she is forced to deny herself the pleasure -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- of seeing Mrs. Marsh.

Your being here is a very great satisfaction to us all, and I desire very much to have the pleasure of seeing you.

With kindest regards from the ladies of my family to Mrs. Marsh & yourself, & with my own sincere & cordial respect, I remain,

Faithfully Yours

C. E. Norton.
