Dear Powers

I send you a big book on Physical Geography, which (I mean the subject, not the book) will, in some aspects, interest you. You are not under the least obligation to read a line of it, as I am sure you can spend your time to better purpose than to read many.

I am much obliged to you for your kindness to my little brother (that is he was little when you saw him last, if indeed you ever saw him before) who was exceedingly interested in all your works, and though an old, old bachelor fell in love with our grandmother Eve at first sight.

Kind regards from us all to you all

G P Marsh note:H Powers Esq
