My dear Mr Pomeroy

I have just received a letter from Carrara saying that the statue is already "pointed," that is, drilled down to the intended surface at a great number of points, and is now in course of chiselling. It is promised, finished, in about three months at furthest.

Much obliged to you for your assurance about Greeley. Thank Heaven, we are not, I trust, sunk quite down to such a chief niagirtracy as that. I don't wonder Sumner cut and run. He must have been heartily ashamed of his company. Greeley's encouragement -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- to the rebels cost usn 100,000 lives and 1000,000,000 of money. He deserves a halter as richly as the greatest rogue south of the Potomac, Toombs himself not excepted. Well, I have nothing to take back about G. I never trusted him --

Very truly yours

G P Marsh note:Hon J N Pomeroy
