My dear Mr. Marsh

I was truly sorry not to have the pleasure of seeing you the other day when I called at the office of the Legation. I shall hope to find you there on one of the days this week.

I was glad to infer from what Mr. Artoni told me that there was no marked change of an unfavorable nature in Miss Crane's condition. I wish that you may be able to tell me that you feel some encouragement concerning her.

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

I do not know whether Mrs. Marsh is at present receiving visits If so, Mrs. Norton & my sisters will very soon have the pleasure of calling on her, and I shall do my self the honor of accompanying them. If she be not receiving will you give to her our kindest sympathy & regards.


----------

I beg you to accept my thanks for your kindness in giving house room to my cases of books. If it be not inconvenient will you let the bearer of this note have them to bring to me.

I am, as always, with sincere respect,

Faithfully Yours

C. E. Norton.
