Dear Powers

I leave the passports & a note to the French Legation with my messenger, who will procure the visas, & bring you the passports & despatches.

These latter consist of a roll, and a large despatch, addressed to the Secretary of State, and another addressed to Mr John Miller, U.S. Despatch Agent London, to whom all three are to be delivered.

I hope the despatches will save you trouble enough at the custom Houses to compensate you for the pains they will cost you. Otherwise, I should by no means have asked you to bother yourself with them. -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- I find I cannot postpone returning to Mrs M. this morning, without deranging our plans, though I much regret not seeing you more. If you return this way & can let us know when you will be here, we shall be very glad of it. I have to take the little recreation I am allowed, when I can, but we are pretty sure of being here from July 20 or 25 to the end of the month, & if you don't stay longer in Babylon than you speak of you will just catch us.

Fight a good fight, (I know you will) with "sympathetic" England. Hard knocks do them service.

Yours very truly

G. P. Marsh note:H Powers Esq
