Mr. Marsh.

Our hearing was continued. (30 in all) till last night at 10 P.M. when Bradley closed. Tom spoke in defence first. 5 hours, Redfield followed him in a 2 hour speech, and Bradley 3 hours. These occupied four meetings. Merrill opened for me in a one hour's speech, Tom and Redfield followed Then, Bradley The committee now have the whole in hand and we are looking for a report soon. When I get any thing you shall have it. The legislature will adjourn one week from Friday tomorrow. Field, put in a bill -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- a few days ago for the appointment of an architect to carry on the work cc. It lies on the table. I do not know just what it is, but paid little attention to it. The report of the committee is now eagerly looked for. Williams and Porter gave Tom, each a sort of Milk and water affidavit. I am looking for a good report from the committee Nothing went in to injure the looks of the case so far as I could judge.

There is much fear of no appropriation. None can be made for him. He knows it and has discharged all but five of the men. The -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- report of the committee will set the ball in full motion Mead's Statue is up and in order. I like it well. If I have any power to act can do a little to the pedestal it stands on and a few things about it to make all as it should be. I see nothing to improve in the thing itself so far as size is concerned. It is not one inch too high. Mead received your letter for the payment of his bill c. The cupola is done with the exception of a little work about the windows. The whole looks well. Columns all on. I am now patiently waiting for a decision, and hope our work is not ended

I am yours truly

Thomas W. Silloway
