Hon Geo. P. Marsh & John N. Pomeroy, Esq.

Gentlemen,

All things considered, I think if you can made it convenient to come to Brattlebor this week Thlursday Evening or Friday morning it will be well. I shall have the Ethan Allen Statue sufficiently far advanced to give you a good idea of its general effect. On Friday the wooden figure will be in a condition to be seen. It has to be worked lying down and on Friday the front will be partially finished (the carving) and it will be standing up ready to turn for finishing the back. As the wish is to have the Allen Statue finished July 4.59. I think the -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- marble should be grained forthwith and then it will be a pretty close fit to complete it, in the time proposed.

If you should not find it convenient to come on Thursday or Friday please let me know as my carvers are making calculations accordingly. --

Yours respectfully

Larkin G. Mead, Jr note:I like very well the photograph of the column. The effect is grand.
