Dear Sir,

I enclose you Gov. Fletchers order on the Treasurer of the State for One hundred dollars being amount appropriation to defray the expenses of the inquiries directed by the Legislature with the science of Pisciculture --

I know the amount of the appropriation is an insignificant compensation for the valuable report furnished by you on this interesting subject, but Republics, you know, are proverbially ungrateful and we have to submit --

With great respect

Your obedient servant

Wm G. Shaw note:Sect c over

W. G. S.
