My Dear friend Marsh

I sent a note to you day before yesterday to ask if you had already sent off your letter in regard to the subject of our last conversation--and to say--that if you had not, I had concluded to modify the terms for a statue from our state for the Capitol of the United States --

I intimated--that in order not to appear insensible to the kindness expressed, I would abate as much as I reasonably could and say $8000 for such a statue on shipboard at Leghorn--but I left it to your better judgment to advise whether or not I should say in currency or Sterling money -- -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- I have not yet heard from you on the subject nor have I written home about it --

Pray let me know by the bearer of this if convenient. If you have written--and--if it would be worth while to make such an offer --

I trust that Mrs Marsh is better--and hope that you have improved since going to Monti Catini -

Yours most sincerely,

Hiram Powers. note:Florence note:July 6th 1866
