My Dear Mr. Marsh

On my return from Philadelphia a few days ago I found your letter of Jan. 3' with its New Years wishes all of which I wish to reciprocate a thousand times over I only wish we and ours could have met this winter and compared notes for the past and future. I wish the latter may have in store a joint expedition to Quatrafage's hunting ground.

Today I have gone over again the books of your collection here and found a few more, which I send by express. I hope that the box forwarded some weeks ago has reached you in safety.

The barometer you speak of I never saw mentioned -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- before. Green can doubtless tell of their value.

Mary is pretty well, her back especially comfortable. She is however much troubled with head aches. With love to Mrs M. I am

Ever Yours

S F Baird note:Hon. Geo P Marsh

The package will go by express tomorrow
