Dear Marsh,

As you are strong be generous & forgive me for not answering your brilliant jewel of last month before this.

The most important news I have to communicate is, Mrs Healy & all the little Healies, including Grandmama are to be in New York on the 7th of next month, on the Fulton from Havre: I am on my way to join them. -- Yesterday I completed a half of Hyman Grattz of this city, which is perhaps the best thing I have done. These people want me to settle here, which shows they do not know Chicago!

I shall meet you in Washington some time next January, I want Congress to give -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- me an order to paint the Franklin subject like the sketch; which hangs beside the large picture, should this be done, I intend to remain in the country a year or 18 months longer to make my family comfortable! & then in case of accident to the old thing himself, they would be all right.

Should you or Mrs. Marsh be in New york within the next 3 weeks drop me a line care of Colonel Thorn 8. West 16th N.y. I trust to be able to start for the Chicago the 15th of next month.

When we meet I shall tell you all about my doings in the west. Give my affectionate regards to Mrs. Marsh & George &

believe me as ever

Most Sincerely yours

Geo P A Healy

P.S. I shall call on Mr & Mrs Pain in N.Y.
