My Friend Marsh

I am at last enabled to transmit to you, some copies of the Perspective of our anticipated Capitol. I have done my best to have produced a good picture and am pleased to think that my efforts have not been in vain. A deal of attention and anxiety has been expended to produce it, of which no one save myself can be conversant. I hope and even dare to think, you will be pleased with the New dome. I like it quite as well as any we have had. Twenty copies of the drawing I send to Mr. Williams for himself, Judge Porter, and the Governor: the rest, I send to doct Powers. If you have any directions for him please write to him immediately so that he may be informed at the time of the meeting of the session. I order but 400 copies of the picture. More can be and at any time they are needed. Please give me your criticisms of the dome as soon as convenient, as I wish to make my working drawings. All the old ones, I lay aside.

I am yours very truly

Thomas W. Silloway note:121 Court St.
