Dear Mr Marsh.

I write you from our new residence, 1445, Mass. Avenue. We have been in it only a few days & are just beginning to be settled. One great inducement in coming to this neighborhood was its proximity to the Edmunds. We are in the same Square, about a hundred yards distant. The house is very comfortable & convenient, & we hope to have a very good time in it. We begin rather unfortunately, as Mary is quite sick in bed, the result of the excitement of moving combined with a very severe cold.

Thanks for sending the Archaeological Bulletin. Lucy will be very glad to have it. If you will send the mineralogical work to which you refer I will see that it is properly noticed. In sending please renew the memorandum to that effect. With much love to Mrs Marsh from all of us, believe me,

Sincerely Yours,

S F Baird. note:Hon. George P. Marsh.U.S. Minister,Rome,Italy.
