Hon Geo P. Marsh, Hon John N Pomeroy

Gentlemen. --

I wish to say a few words concerning the Ethan Allen Statue. I wrote to Mr Baxter two months ago telling him if he felt disposed to get out a piece of marble of the necessary dimensions for the Statue. I have not heard from him but think very likely he intends to get it out. --

I should like to go to Rutland and find out how the matter stands. I should also like to take the model to Montpelier at the time of next Legislature, for I think it would help very decidedly in getting an appropriation. --

Would it be just that such expenses should be paid from the funds in your hands. I have been at considerable expense and do not feel able to expend much more, my pocket being quite small. --

I have a paper with a -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- subscription of 100 dollars by W. S. Witmore which I will send to you whenever you wish to collect it. I think I hall set the model out of doors sometime this summer to see its effect. I believe all the Judges of the Supreme Court in Vermont have seen the model this winter and were all much pleased with it. --

I am anxious to commence upon the marble whenever there are funds to defray the necessary expenses

Hoping I may hear from you when convenient I remain

Very respectfully Yours
