My Dear Marsh

I sent Longworth to the officer who issued the papers, calling on us to pay a portion of the forced Loan -- That officer sent my son to another officer in another part of the City who told him he must get a Stamped paper and write out a protest and get you to give a certificate that we were Citizens of the United States amp;c ampc --

My son brought the papers back--after saying that he would take no further trouble about the matter--for it was perfectly well known to the authorities here, that we were American Citizens--and the papers themselves--have the word "Americano" on them --

I thought it best to send the papers--where they came from -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- after writing on the outside--

"Citizens of the United States are not responsible to this Claim --

Respectfully,

Hiram PowersLongworth Powers" note:April 4th 1867.

and I inclosed them through the Post Office --

With kindest regards

I am yours ever,

H Powers

-----------

Florence April 5th 1867
