Dear Baird

I asked Mr Henry yesterday if he had a place for you, to which he replied, that he thought there would be, as soon as any progress had been made in collecting. I said nothing to him about, Elliot, but Mr Jewett thinks it impossible that Mr Henry contemplates any such movement as you suppose. It is entirely out of the plan of the concern to have professors, & I can't think there is anything of it, at least so far as the Board is concerned, and without the Board Mr H. can do nothing. If you can get a fair translation-- made at [37p] cents, is it not a good operation for you? I should say yea. -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- We shall visit you if we can. It would depend upon the length of time we are detained here, & Mrs M's health both of which are very uncertain. I send Fremont by this mail. I fear I shall not be at home in time for the menobranchi, but have written to a friend to get some for you if possible.

I had some expectations of a mission, & should have succeeded if the Vermonters at Washington had made an effort for me. I may still be offered one, but if so, I am not likely to owe it to the good will of the people of my own state,

Yours truly

G P Marsh
