Hon. Geo. P. Marsh --

Dear Sir --

Yours of yesterday is recd -- I send you two sketches made by Mr. Richards, from Silloway's plans One of these sketches represents the dome curve as it is drawn, & the other according to the figures On putting one over the other you will perceive a variance I understand Mr. Richards to say that there will be no difficulty in striking either curve Silloway has marked his height 19 f. 6 in. & drawn it on a height of 21 feet If I rightly understand Mr. Richards, he only wants to know which height he shall take I told him I thought 21 feet to be right as that would give it the as drawn --

In haste

T. E Powers
