Hon Geo P. Marsh.,

Dear Sir,

I received a letter from Thomas E. Powers last evening in which he says "I have seen the commissioners to day and by their advice shall accept your proposition for the execution of the figure for the dome. I shall expect it done to the acceptance of the commissioners and with proper dispatch. Mr Marsh will confer with you in relation to it and give you such direction and advice from time to time as he may see fit. I think you are mistaken in your recollection of the proposed height, though upon that point you will consult Mr Marsh."

Over

-------------------------------- Page --------------------------------

I infer from Mr Powers' letter that I am commissioned to execute the figure for the dome of the State House. I wish I might hear from you in relation to the matter. I had the idea that twelve feet was thought the proper height. Please inform me what you had decided upon. Anything which you may think of in relation to the figure I shall be glad to hear and act accordingly. There is a very superior German wood-carver here who will be of great assistance to me. I shall endeavor to make a good piece of work and hope it may give satisfaction to the commissioners and others who are interested. Feeling under great obligations to you for your many favors, I remain

Your Obt Svt
