Turin Sept 2 1863


Dear Powers

We returned this morning at 2 o'clock from a ten days' excursion, & I have just rece'vd yours of the 25. Aug. My visit to London is given up. I cannot, therefore, have the pleasure of a journey with Mrs Powers & yourself, which I should have much enjoyed.

Our house at Turin is under repair, & will not be ready for us for some weeks, but we hope to be able to receive you in it, on your way back. In the mean time we are living at a country -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- house, not far from a RR. Station 10 miles west of Turin. If you will let me know, by telegram or otherwise, when you will be here, I will manage to meet you, & Mrs M. will be delighted to have you both come out & stay a night or more with us.

Having many letters to answer, I write in great haste, & am very truly yours

Geo. P Marsh
