Dear Sir,

It has been difficult to find a day for going to Montpelier, more on account of the engagements of Judge Porter than myself. Probably we shall fix on Monday or Tuesday of next week. Judge Porter will be here on Wednesday and tho' I shall not see him I shall leave a note requesting him to designate the day and advise you.

Silloway and Powers were both here last week. I learned nothing new from Silloway. He came merely to urge a meeting. Powers says he is equally anxious to meet us--that he does not intend to use the defective stones,--nor the mended columns, unless we advise him to do so, and that he intends to carry out the plan to the letter. Powers was on his return from Boston

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

He asked me if you wished to have Mead execute the figure and said if you did, he was perfectly willing it should be done by him. I told him that might be settled when you and he met at Montpelier.

I suppose all that we are to see and hear can be seen and heard in one day
